The Achterhoek is a rural area in the east of the Netherlands. About 20% of the employment and bussines is generated by the foodsector. The goal of Achterhoek Food Platform is to transform the Achterhoek into a food region that is distinctive on healthy, sustainable and regional food. Our ambition is to become an international food destination and we develop a regional food strategy with participation of all stakeholders.

We approach this in a unique way: bottom up, multi- and interdisciplinary. Always benefical for a vital region. These are the key words for our regional food strategy. By launching a manifest, we make a concrete action plan that reinforces the food strategy. Multi-stakeholders sign this manifest as an agreement that they adopt this strategy and execute the plan of action for the region.
