Next story for Dutch Greenhouse Delta:

Interview with Priva's Maren Schoormans: “Our customers don’t ask us to build just a handful of greenhouses anymore; they want us to feed millions of people and they’re looking for one party that can do it all. Together with the other DGD members, we have an answer.”

If you need an ADVERTORIAL for your business, you can ask me for help.

Here is an example of one I recently wrote for packaging company FP International that was published as part of The Future of Packaging report in UK paper The Times.

In cooperation with public affairs and communications consultancy Schuttelaar & Partners in The Hague which works to make the world a healthier and more sustainable place.

My latest story for the Dutch Greehouse Delta foundation - A few years ago, the Qatari government asked the Dutch horticulture sector for help. “Like many countries, Qatar wants to become more self-sufficient and less dependent on imports,” explains Mike Vermeij, CEO of Bom Group. The Netherlands couldn’t respond to Qatar’s request at that time. “Had the Dutch Greenhouse Delta existed back then, it would have been possible.”

I talked to CEOs in the Dutch greenhouse horticulture sector who are joining forces in the Dutch Greenhouse Delta. Story 2: KUBO's Wouter Kuiper hopes to find solutions to some of the world’s biggest challenges: food production, food safety, water scarcity, and fuel.

For Dutch Greenhouse Delta, a new foundation that promotes the Dutch horticultural sector worldwide, I interviewed CEOs and others in the business. Nr 1: Hein van der Sande, CEO of Certhon which designs and builds greenhouses and indoor growing facilities.

According to Van der Sande, the global demand for locally-grown, safe and sustainable food is on the rise. Countries want to be self-sufficient in feeding their growing populations, who often live in megacities. The Netherlands has a maritime climate, which is very favourable for growing vegetables and flowers outdoors. Unfortunately, this is not the case in many other places in the world.

After my talk, I let the audience in Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam smell this oud oil perfume, "the scent of Kuwait" (according to me), which reminds me of the shopping malls and restaurants + I received these #TheNetherlands & #Kuwait friendship flags from one of the guests.
