Dutch action plan on organic production and consumption

Organic agriculture in the Netherlands can play an important role in the transition to a sustainable and future-proof agriculture. In this action plan the central government of the Netherlands, set out the ambition to substantially increase organic production and consumption. The actions are a starting point to work together with chain parties. 

An important part of the plan is that consumers and chain parties are familiar with organic products and the European organic label.
