Feeding the cities
We want to make Rotterdam the healthiest city in the Netherlands. Not just for ourselves, but also to create new revenue models and markets elsewhere. Every day, our region works on solutions to current and future (international) food issues. The Rotterdam region is a front runner in research into plant compounds, personalised food and greening schools. We will continue doing this at full speed.
Healthy CityBecoming an example to the worldWe do pilots with local food production and urban farming, we research the positive effects of 'green' classrooms and continue learning about food that prevents and cures disease. In fact, Rotterdam Food Cluster takes the lead. We keep expanding on these skills, so that we may be of service to others in the future.
