Pilot project focusses on Central America

Dutch conglomerate build sustainable greenhouse in Guatamala

Nethwork is a cluster of 13 leading Dutch horticultural companies and the HAS University of Den Bosch. In March the conglomerate started a three-year program under the banner of the dutch government.

The idea behind the cooperative venture is to come up with sustainable developments to aid Central America’s horticulture. The plan is to share Dutch knowledge, experience and technology and apply them locally. The 14 institutions will start with setting up a pilot project in a Guatemalan greenhouse.

Edwin Smit: “This test case will show that it’s possible to realize a project of this magnitude. It is also meant to ignite debates on sustainable topics.”

NethWork introduced itself officially at the Horti Fair this season.

NethWork participants include:
A. van Dongen Heerschap, Aweta, Celtic Cooling, GreenQ, HAS Hogeschool, Ideavelop, Javo, Jconnecta, Van der Knaap, Lutgo Global, Formflex-Metazet, Priva, Valstar Holland, Van der Heide Foliekassen.
