From 4-8 August, the Netherlands welcomed around 20 Brazilian onion growers and merchants from the region of Ituporanga, Santa Catarina, supported by Richard Posma of NBSO Porto Alegre. The program consisted of company visits, network receptions and an expert round table led by Bert Rikken, Agriculture Counselor for Brasil of the Embassy of the Netherlands in Brazil. Several other organizations cooperated as well to make this mission a success; Special thanks go to Elcio Goedert of KRG Turismo, Jaap Jonker of De Groot en Slot, Gijsbrecht Gunter of The Dutch Onion Association, Inge Ribbens of ´Groente & Fruithuis´. A Brazilian media-team that travelled with the group has produced several news-items. The first item gives an overview of what the Netherlands is capable of.
