Genap is also pleased to provide its expertise and product innovation in the field of international (development) collaboration. An example of this is Green Farming: a programme for Dutch horticultural suppliers who are active in exporting goods, services, knowledge and advice to the Ethiopian and Kenyan market.
The programme is intended to promote the export of Dutch products through concerted action in the Ethiopian and Kenyan market. In addition, the programme also focuses on intensifying collaboration between the Dutch members and Ethiopian and Kenyan businesses and organisations in the field of research, development and production.
Green Farming is coordinated by sector organisation AVAG and DLV Plant and is supported by the Ministry for International Trade and Development Collaboration. Wageningen UR (the university and research centre based in Wageningen, Netherlands) further strengthens the cluster in the field of research. Within the framework of this collaboration, Genap has developed and installed fully enclosed water reservoirs and silos at the Van den Berg Roses demonstration project in Naivasha, Kenya.
