Overview

About us

FoodvalleyNL - Foodvalley NL is a non-profit agrifood innovation cluster based in Wageningen, the Netherlands, founded in 2004 as one of the first agrifood innovation clusters. The organisation consists of ca. 25 employees with various backgrounds and areas of expertise related to agriculture or food. FV has a network of over 215 companies and keeps close ties to prominent knowledge institutes. FVNL focuses on three main innovation themes within the agrifood domain: Protein Shift, Food & Health and Circular Agrifood, with Smart & Digital Technology crossing the three main themes. Moreover, FV plays a coordinating role in the agrifood ecosystem by supporting Entrepreneurship, Human Capital and Shared Facilities in the network. In November 2020 it was announced Foodvalley NL will be the leading European Hub in a new, worldwide network of Food Innovation Hubs that are being catalysed and supported in Africa, Latin America, and Asia by the World Economic Forum (WEF) and several global and regional partners. Througout the year, FV organises thematic sessions, Member Meetings, Innovation Insights, and webinars about relevant topics for our network.
