Shaping the future of food together
In 2050 our food system needs to offer food security to ten billion people worldwide. Tasty, affordable, healthy and sustainable food, produced with respect for animals and our planet. It is a major challenge but one that is achievable if we join forces and shape the future of food together. Since 2004 Foodvalley NL has been developing and strengthening an international ecosystem of companies and organizations that work together to realize the transition to a sustainable food system. We work closely with corporates, SMEs and governments at every level, and with renowned educational and research institutions.
Together we scale up innovations more quickly
Members and partners of the Foodvalley ecosystem challenge, support and connect with each other. Together, we set the agenda and initiate and develop programs to scale up innovations more quickly and help companies to develop and grow more swiftly. The new activities that we foster generate international interest and create a flywheel of scientific development and economic growth that brings benefits for all.
“We need to work together to realize breakthrough solutions that lead to structural system change – for our own future and that of generations to come.“
Marjolein Brasz, Managing Director Foodvalley NL

Foodvalley NL’s experts convinced us that we could really make a difference and helped us to connect with local production partners. We successfully launched our first plant-based milk in December 2020. And there are more products to come!”
