The world of food is changing

Over the next 30 years, the way we grow, buy, and eat our food will look drastically different. Through a series of podcasts and webcasts, we’ll explore the food of the future across three themes and dive deeper into how the Netherlands is pivotal in this journey.

These are the three themes we'll be covering:
