The Netherlands is among the leading exporters of food and agricultural products worldwide. Key to that is its geographic position, along the North Sea in the delta of many important European rivers, great for transport and trade. Its flowers, cheese, tomatoes, vegetables, and beer are internationally well-known. The Dutch horticulture sector has a very complex logistic network making it possible that vegetables harvested in the Netherlands can be sold in New York on the same day. Research and technology are essential to Dutch agriculture and horticulture, and many local companies and important institutions participate in innovative work, including sustainability and nutrition.
