Our mission

Today’s pressing societal, ecological and human development challenges require solutions. Agrifood companies and organisations play an important role in feeding a growing world population in a way that is both sustainable and resilient. Current and future challenges have to be solved to accomplish this. To do this, we analyse and redesign value chains in agrifood business and share our insights with stakeholders in agrifood business and society.

In Wageningen, we work to provide solutions for the challenges of today and tomorrow. Providing students with top class education is an integral part of this. By educating the bright minds of tomorrow, we contribute to a future food system that is sustainable and resilient.

Section Business Science is comprised of five chair groups. Business Economics, Business Management & Organisation, Information Technology, Marketing Consumer Behaviour and Operations Research and Logistics are the star players of the section. Together, our expertise goes from seed to shopping cart and even beyond to food waste and reverse logistics.
