Russia seeks Dutch help in food production
Russia wants technology and knowledge.
Due to the European food boycott, Russia has been forced to improve its own food supply. The Netherlands is a leader in the development of agricultural technology and is currently the second food exporter in the world after the United States. Therefore, Russia is providing many agricultural companies from the Netherlands with grants to invest in Russia. Dutch farmers can also get free farmland to set up a company in Russia.
Dutch greenhouse builders are increasingly exporting to other countries. Exports to Russia annually yield about 200 million euros. Dutch consultants from greenhouses are in Russia more often and for longer periods. They assist with the production of fruit and vegetables and making sure the Dutch greenhouses give the highest yields.
So Dutch farmers and businesses can make money in Russia, but it is not easy, according to Galema, a Friesian dairy farmer. "In view of Russian culture and the bureaucracy, it is useful to have a reliable Russian co-owner. Or at least a Russian partner who speaks the language and knows the culture," says Galema. Hij has spent years in finding a reliable Russian partner, which, according to him is essential to doing business in Russia.
Lely, the largest producer and exporter of milking robots in the world, is participating in the Galema's project. Lely will supply 20 milking robots. They want to show Russia that the Dutch technology can also operate efficiently for very large companies.
