British Columbia: Collaborations in Innovative Agriculture

The Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Vancouver is delighted to present a brochure which highlights several advanced innovative Agtech companies in British Columbia, each with a specific link to the Netherlands.

The Netherlands and Canada share a long history, especially in the field of agriculture the business connections and personal connections are strong. In the Netherlands and in British Columbia, innovation plays a key role in the Agri-tech sector. We consider this to be crucial to deal with global issues such as food security, water challenges and soil degradation. Both jurisdictions see a strong need to move to a circular, more sustainable agriculture. We realize that international collaboration is essential to accomplish a more sustainable future.
