About us

Developing Northeast Brabant into AgriFood Capital, an excellent AgriFood region with international appeal, national attraction and local collaboration; Its ambitious, but realistic. The Northeast Brabant AgriFood cluster contains such high quality and is so complete, it is unique in its kind. At this moment the cluster is already responsible for € 1.9 billion in economic added value and 30% of the region's employment.

In the DNA of Northeast Brabant lies a deep connection with AgriFood and thus serves as AgriFood Capital, a strong region and the ideal trial for new food related products, technologies, and concepts. Our strategic location provides us with resources from academic centres in Wageningen, Nijmegen, Eindhoven, and Tilburg.

From breeding to fresh produce and in partnership with other sectors like construction, logistics, engineering and healthcare. The goals of this collaboration are clear:
