The Dutch Agri Food Week is the ultimate national stage that focuses on food and food production. Various parties from the agri-food sector will all be participating in the Dutch Agri Food Week, sharing their enthusiasm, knowledge and skills with society. This year’s Agri Food Week takes place all throughout the Netherlands from October 9 till October 19. Farmers, businesses from the supply and processing industry, government and scientists will show how they are working to ensure the availability of safe and healthy food for us and later, for the global population of 9 billion people. 

The Dutch Agri Food Week shows how parties work together on sustainable food systems now and in the future. This annual event is designed for anyone with an interest in food and food production, both professionals and consumers.

This year, the Dutch Agri Food Week’s main theme is food and health. Food to be able to learn, work and live: from malnutrition to obesity, from healthy and tasty food for children to growing  old with vitality and in good health.
