Netherlands boosts horticultural collaboration in India

Let’s connect for future growth

The Dutch horticultural sector is on a mission to strengthen its collaboration with India, targeting the rising demand for fresh, safe, and nutritious fruits and vegetables in the country. This endeavor falls under the NLHortiRoad2India, a multi-year public-private partnership aimed at establishing the Dutch horticultural sector as a pivotal contributor to India’s dynamic food market landscape.

A New Partnership: Dutch Greenhouse Delta Signs MoU with Indian Grower Lemon Chilli Farms

In September, Dutch Greenhouse Delta, representing the Dutch horticultural cluster ‘NLHortiRoad2India,’ signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Indian grower Lemon Chilli Farms. This momentous event took place during a trade mission to Bengaluru, India, with the presence of the Dutch Prime Minister, Mark Rutte. Lemon Chilli Farms, located near Hyderabad, produces a variety of vegetables, herbs, and fruits, incorporating Dutch technology for sustainable production. In this MoU, both parties expressed their intent to implement innovative Dutch systems for sustainable food production in collaboration with the Indian grower. This partnership brings together the Dutch government and leading horticultural technology suppliers, focusing on the sustainable transformation of India’s emerging food markets. Cluster members Priva, Koppert, and Broekman Logistics also participated in this significant collaboration.
