The Netherlands Agro, Food & Technology Centre (NAFTC)-India is a public-private partnership, representing the Dutch agro-food sector in India that provides Dutch expertise, products & technology relevant to Indian requirements. NAFTC-India works in close cooperation with the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the biggest Dutch technology sector association FME and with various Indian State Governments. We focus on the whole value chain from ‘farm to fork’, offering an integrated approach for both Indian & Dutch businesses and covering major agro/food related sectors.

NAFTC-India is a gateway to the agriculture, food processing & logistics sectors of the Netherlands. NAFTC-India links the knowledge, expertise & technology available in the Netherlands with the Indian requirements through a cluster approach. Various clusters of expertise are functional under the framework of NAFTC-India. The clusters are the entry point for Indian business and Government to the Dutch agribusiness sector and serves as a bridge between Indian demand and what Holland has to offer.
