Potential markets

Dutch Greenhouse Delta has the ambition to contribute to the provision of sufficient healthy, affordable food and sustainable  flowers and plants. We promote horticultural solutions from The Netherlands worldwide and identify opportunities for horticulture in regions with significant potential for collaboration. Together with government and local partners, we explore the possibilities for commercial partnerships. We also organize and participate in fact-finding missions and study tours.

Central Asia

Countries in Central Asia such as Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan have been increasingly investing in its agriculture and horticulture sector, to achieve higher yields while reducing scarce resources and increase agricultural exports to neighboring countries. In recent years, collaboration has taken place with the Netherlands for knowledge, expertise, and innovative technology for sustainable food production. Our activities promote Dutch innovate solutions to help countries in Central Asia to achieve their agricultural ambitions.

South East Asia

Dutch Greenhouse Delta has been exploring the South East Asian market for several years. Vietnam has been attracting significant attention for several years due to its outstanding potential in horticulture and floriculture. Horticulture and floriculture are among the most promising sectors in the Vietnamese economy, due to the diverse climatic conditions, the young and ambitious population, the large domestic market, the growing middle-income consumer group, and their favorable environment for foreign investment.

South Asia

In countries in South Asia such as Bangladesh, urbanization and climate change pose significant challenges to agriculture. Available agricultural land is decreasing while the demand for food is increasing. Bangladesh shows significant interest in Dutch knowledge and expertise on protected crops to meet the countries’ future food demand. This provides Dutch companies with the opportunity to deploy their expertise and position themselves as valuable partners through the activities of Dutch Greenhouse Delta.

North Africa

Dutch Greenhouse Delta is committed to laying the foundation for future collaborations that
enhance the agriculture and horticulture sector within North Africa.

Agriculture is a major component of the Egyptian economy. Meeting the demand for food is one of the significant challenges for agriculture, as farmland is being degraded. Protected agriculture can provide practical solutions to sidestep soil erosion and reduce water loss through controlled conditions. Therefore, driven by a rising need for food in lockstep with population expansion, agriculture must take significant and drastic steps toward efficiency and sustainability, utilizing technology.

We explore opportunities for mutual growth and collaboration in smart agriculture between Japan and the Netherlands. The country is committed to transforming the agriculture sector into a modern, sustainable, and resilient industry, aiming to establish a green food system. Innovations in greenhouse horticulture play an important role in addressing  challenges such as climate change and labour shortages.

During Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai, Dutch Greenhouse Delta will be responsible for the horticultural programming within the Dutch submission themed ‘Common Ground’. A great opportunity for bringing together Dutch and Japanese experts in agriculture technology and innovation.
