Towards sustainable food production

The Netherlands is an international thought leader in sustainable food production. In the Russian Federation, our agri- and horticulture companies and knowledge institutes contribute to the modernisation of the industry through business partnerships, knowledge transfer and exchange of best practices.

Greenhouses for food security

The Dutch are experts in growing vegetables in greenhouses. We share our expertise all over the world. The embassy facilitates knowledge transfer, for example by participating at the yearly Greenhouses Forum in Moscow. And Dutch companies such as Signify, former Philips Lightning, and construction company Dalsem are involved in various projects. One of them is in Kaluga Region, where greenhouses that measure over 100 hectares were built.
