From their office in Lansingerland they will do R&D on seed breeding and vegetable growing; provide training courses on food safety and processing; and process vegetables into value added products. “Our overall ambition is to build a platform for cooperation and exchange between the horticulture sectors of China and the Netherlands. By investing in Lansingerland and building this platform, we are convinced that both the WestHolland region and CSV will reap the fruits of enhanced cooperation between China and the Netherlands in the area of horticulture,” this according to Mr. Ding Junyang, Vice-President of CSV.
Mr. Ding Junyang, Vice-President of CSV states, that “the decision to invest in the WestHolland region was quite clear. Lansingerland is one of the most advanced and developed greenhouse areas in the world, where many vegetable growers apply high-tech methods to grow their products. Also many leading greenhouse companies and research institutes are located in this region. Therefore we chose Lansingerland to locate our business and become part of the Dutch horticulture industry.”

Assistance of WestHolland
“The relationship with WFIA has been extremely pleasant. From the moment our company showed interest in investing in the WestHolland region, they helped us acquiring information, finding a suitable location and ensured a soft landing of our company. They also helped us in bridging the cultural gaps and avoiding some pitfalls that foreign companies encounter when investing abroad. Once we were settled in Lansingerland, the WFIA continued to support our business by establishing new contacts, providing a vibrant networking community, answering practical questions and more generally getting connected with the Netherlands.” Gérard van Bracht, Dutch Representative CSV.
