Striving for food security, sustainability and transparency

Author: Host Account Idas/Monday, July 20, 2015/Categories: Horticulture

FarmDigital is a public-private cooperation within the Dutch top sector policy. The Netherlands' top sectors of Horticulture & Propagation Materials and AgriFood are striving to create sustainable and transparent agricultural supply chains in order to guarantee food security and sustainability. FarmDigital is making its contribution to this cause by developing and marketing an online infrastructure that will enable users to freely exchange information about certification data. Standardisation authorities, certification bodies, business communities and scientific groups all work together within FarmDigital under the direction of LEI Wageningen UR.

The programme develops standards for exchanging certification data, sets up a proof of concept in AgriPlace and maps out the business models that can form the basis of these.
