Ukrainian delegation visits greenhouses in the Netherlands

On April 24, the Municipality of Westland welcomed a delegation from Ukraine, comprising about 50 individuals, at Tomatoworld. The visit was part of a week during which a delegation from the war-torn country visited the Netherlands to explore how greenhouses can contribute to the reconstruction efforts.

The day commenced at Tomatoworld with a reception by council member Peter Valstar, followed by an informative introduction about Tomatoworld by interim director Aart Van den Bos. Aart underscored Tomatoworld's dedication to data-driven approaches. Subsequently, guide Ank van der Meulen provided insights into the challenges of nourishing a rapidly expanding global population.

Ukrainian delegation
The Ukrainian delegation, comprising approximately fifteen mayors and thirty to forty representatives from the horticultural sector, spent three days in the Westland region. This visit aimed to promote direct cooperation between Dutch and Ukrainian stakeholders, especially in the horticulture sector.

During the tour, guests had the opportunity to explore the greenhouse and learn more about growth processes, energy consumption, biological crop protection, and water conservation. Discussions also centered on logistics and sustainability, covering topics such as energy efficiency and circular solutions.

The delegation proceeded with their tour to KUBO Greenhouse Projects in Monster, where further exchanges occurred on key topics such as greenhouses, horticulture, and AGRItech. The delegation showed enthusiasm by actively participating in the discussions and posing questions. This visit represents an important step in strengthening the ties between the Netherlands and Ukraine in the field of horticulture. It underscores the value of international cooperation in addressing global challenges in food supply.
