Dutch Hortifruit Partners for India

The Dutch Hortifruit Partnership for India is a public-private partnership that offers solutions for the entire Indian Hortifruit chain. Our aim is to improve quality, increase yields and establish high levels of post-harvest handling practices. We do so through our approach that is focused on cooperation between government agencies, knowledge institutions and private enterprises. Together, we develop sustainable Hortifruit chains by offering high-quality products and services.

Examples are hands-on training, virus-free temperate fruit trees and efficient sorting and grading of fruits. These will lead to state-of-the-art, but localized, solutions for both domestic and export use. Our experienced Dutch Hortifruit suppliers are ready to forge partnerships with Indian counterparts.
