Flevoland food entrepreneurs

Food and Flevoland go hand in hand. Created to play an important role in food production, the region is now home to numerous businesses that are doing their bit – each in their own unique way – to provide the food of today and tomorrow. The province of Flevoland has put together 29 video portraits (collectively called the Future of Food series) to introduce you, in the months ahead, to a number of businesses and organisations that are involved in the food supply chain: from farmer to plate. They are all working hard to keep everyone fed, today and in the future. The entire series is available to watch via the Future of Food play list on YouTube.

Passion and enthusiasm

The passion and enthusiasm of Flevoland’s entrepreneurs are key in the YouTube series. The series gives viewers an insight into the complexity of the work, the world we live in, the balance between hi-tech and ecology and the possible outcomes.
