Visit to our member Atlantic Growers in Odemira
The Netherlands is the world's number two exporter of food as measured by value, despite of being such a small country! More than half of the Dutch land area is used for agriculture and horticulture with extraordinary greenhouse complexes. These climate-controlled farms enable the Netherlands to be a global leader in the exports of tomato, potatoes, onions and vegetable seeds. Atlantic Growers Portugal is using state-of- the-art Dutch technology and an innovative leadership style to grow sweet snack peppers Vitapep and snack tomatoes in Portugal, thereby becoming one of the best quality suppliers in the country.
On the 11th of October, our associate Atlantic Growers organized an interactive program in their production facilities in Odemira, Alentejo. It included a tour through the vast and high tech facilities and was concluded with a lunch where we could taste AG products. Ambassador Nienke Trooster also marked her presence and participated in the lively debates. If you want to see more about this visit check here.
