Why Zeeland is the hotspot for agrifood:
Zeeland is strategically located
Zeeland is located very strategically between the two world ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp. In fact, the Zeeland-Flemish Canal zone, which falls under the municipality of Terneuzen, is also known as the gateway to Europe.
Thanks to its attractive maritime climate, Zeeland is particularly suitable for a wide range of players within the agrifood sector, an example being the establishment of (greenhouse) horticultural companies. Zeeland is also known as the sunshine province. With an annual average of 1,650 hours’ sunshine this is the sunniest spot in the Netherlands. And last but not least, Zeeland has a lot of space to offer at competitive land prices. It is not hard to guess why successful companies choose to locate here.
