Dutch Agri Food Week is an annual event that takes place in October on and around World Food Day. During the event, farmers, businesses in the supply and processing chain, retailers, public bodies and scientists from all over the Netherlands will come together to find out how they might contribute towards safe, healthy and appetising food and what is necessary in the supply chain – from crop to tabletop – in order to achieve this. By opening its doors – quite literally – and demonstrating transparency, the food sector is aiming to intensify its ties with a wider public. Dutch Agri Food Week is intended for anyone with an interest in food and food innovation, both as a professional and a consumer.
World Food Day is the new festival on ‘wereldvoedseldag’ a Dutch festival on Sunday 16th October.
