• Food


How can I gain more financial benefits for my food business? What (international) developments affect my organisation? The Dutch food sector does not only export goods, it also provides for a substantial part of the nutritional needs of consumers in the Netherlands. Technological innovation, sustainability and economies of scale are important topics in the entire chain. More and more growing food businesses, from the food processing industry to growers and entrepreneurs in the greenhouse horticulture sector, are having to deal with international (tax) legislation and regulations. In view of business continuity and family harmony, succession in family businesses in the food sector is an important issue.
