The Netherlands as a leader in circular agriculture
Dutch Minister Carola Schouten, minister of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality shares her vision as an outline of the transition to circular agriculture and what it will require of us. It is up to all of us to find ways of putting this into practice.
After the transition, farmers, growers and fishermen will remain at the basis of our food system. It presents them in particular with a major challenge and will demand a great deal from them. Many of them are prepared and motivated to accept the challenge.
Farming, horticulture and fisheries contribute significantly to the prosperity of the Netherlands. These sectors are constantly innovating, making them global leaders.
