Going at it alone is quicker, but together you’ll go further. Sounds like a cliché but we genuinely believe this. A ‘networking collaboration’ ensures greater added value, smarter use of resources, enhanced work enjoyment and more innovation. In order to be able to resolve the major challenges we face, the right parties must work intensively together in communities. With HortiHeroes, we are helping to build one such community in the Food & Flower industry. And we cannot do this alone; we work with partner companies, start-ups, talents, knowledge institutions and entrepreneurs from inside and outside the industry.
