Hortivation

The Hortivation foundation (formerly Storeka) focuses on technical innovations and knowledge management in greenhouse technology. Its internationally active members are active in the development and global delivery of greenhouse production systems. Hortivation has the ambition to ensure the Netherlands's top position in the field of Integrated Growing System, with and for its members.

Hortivation and TNO have signed an agreement for innovation in the greenhouse technology sector for the period 2018-2022.

The purpose of this cooperation is to strengthen the international leadership position.

Hortivation published the roadmap 'Greenhouse Technology' in cooperation with AVAG, TNO and the Topsector Tuinbouw en Uitgangsmaterialen. The purpose of this roadmap is to further expand the international network and to make the Netherlands a leader in the realization of global food production delta's for fresh food and flowers. The roadmap is built along five pillars. These five pillars are: Robotization, Digitization, Innovative greenhouse construction and enveloping materials, optimization of cultivation systems and adequate climate control.

Growing interest world-wide

There is growing interest in the world and asking for fresh food and flowers. Reason for Hortivation to collaborate with business to find a reliable and sustainable way to produce affordable, healthy and tasty fresh foods. The Netherlands is the market leader in greenhouse technology and this position will be strengthened by continuing to innovate and apply this internationally. This goes beyond the development of better greenhouses, as well as looking for new business models like "Growing as a Service".
