Are you a professional in international dairy sector development? Are you searching for ways and means to support those men and women working in the dairy sector? Are you looking for the latest developments and good practices?
Agri-ProFocus members FrieslandCampina, Wageningen UR, Van Hall Larenstein University of Applied Sciences, SNV, Agriterra, Heifer and Ministry of Economic Affairs are organising the expert meeting: Added value of Dutch approach for dairy development in emerging markets! If the above appeals to you and your organisation’s daily practice, you would not want to miss this event!
The Dutch have a long history in farmer-led development of the dairy sector and the export of their dairy development expertise and dairy products. It therefore is more than opportune to take a breath and look into the past, the present and the future for a strong and realistic joint Dutch value proposition for and in upcoming economies.
This expert meeting will provide a unique opportunity to share the latest developments and experiences of the Dutch approach and to exchange your thoughts with other professionals in our network.
