" Innovations provide a
new future for traditions"



AgriNL is a unique network of 11 Dutch organizations leading in the Agrifood sector. We are bound by a shared ambition: To secure green, healthy, and trustworthy food chains that impact the Netherlands, Europe, and the wider world.


We represent €46 billion in turnover, 116.000 employees worldwide, 50.000 farmers, and are active in more than 45 countries. By working together, we contribute to the Agrifood sector with the Netherlands at the forefront of innovation as it plays a crucial role for regional, European, and global Agrifood chains.


AgriNL has a long history and continues to work to further strengthen the Netherlands as an international leader in agriculture and horticulture. At the beginning of 2000, the leaders of a number of leading Agrifood companies came together and joined forces as the Dutch AgriBusiness Forum.


We were then, as we are today, connected by a shared effort to tackle the biggest challenges that the Agrifood sector is facing in both the medium and long term. These challenges connect and transcend us as individual companies as cooperation is required in order to obtain sustainable solutions. This is our raison d’être.
