In an area rich in food history, a magical place with meaning for the future emerges
In Ede, in the Foodvalley region and close to Wageningen University & Research, the former Maurits Zuid barracks area is being transformed into the food meeting place in the Netherlands: the World Food Center. A place where companies and organizations settle down, where visitors playfully learn everything about our food and where people live, work and come home. Here, makers, companies and organizations, from start-ups to veterans, show their food innovations to a wide audience and fruitful collaborations flourish. A place where food is central and the breathtaking nature of the Veluwe literally enters the area.
The world population is growing, the climate is increasingly under pressure. The challenge of providing everyone with sufficient healthy and sustainable food is greater than ever. How can we produce more efficiently in the future? And how do we keep the impact on the environment as small as possible? How can we eat healthier and waste less?
A change is needed to a different way of producing and consuming: a new way of thinking. Collaboration,
dialogue and awareness play an important role in this. The World Food Center encourages us to take responsibility and to jointly examine the food issues of today and tomorrow. With the motto: "We feed each other".
