NL: Hortivation foundation launches website

Foundation Hortivation will have its own website from October 3rd 2017., where visitors can find everything about, among other things, calculation tool CASTA and current innovation projects. The aim of this website is to increase the visibility of the greenhouse technology sector in the national and worldwide markets alike. 

Hortivation started in 2015, a joint implementation of innovation projects, in collaboration with the expertise institutes TNO and WUR Wageningen. They also started the supply of licenses for the use of software (among others: calculation tool CASTA) to professional greenhouse construction and technology companies. On this website, investors can see if their business partner has a software license. If so, the investor can be sure that his greenhouse will meet the requirements as formulated in Dutch industrial norms for greenhouses and that Dutch design expertise will be applied, also for international markets.

Harm Maters, deputy chairman of Hortivation says: “The greenhouse technology sector is a substantial part of the Dutch horticulture cluster. The strong growth of the world market for sustainable production systems for fresh food and flowers makes it plain once more how large this business actually is, as well as its worldwide growth potential”.
