Food Forum

  • ✔ Architecture
  • ✔ Feeding the City

Visit the Food Forum pavilion, metres below sea level. In the garden, slender, waving grasses and airy Gypsophila bring sea foam to mind. The province of Flevoland’s fertile soil make it Europe’s food garden. Designed on a drawing board, its sole purpose was to feed mouths. It was created by human hands, with vast and fertile fields and innovation there always happens on a large-scale. It’s the perfect place to grow our food of the future. Food and Flevoland go hand in hand.

Future of Food

Created to play an important role in food production, the region of Flevoland is now home to numerous businesses that are doing their bit – each in their own unique way – to provide the food of today and tomorrow. Food Forum is a vibrant meeting place for experts in the field of food. Stakeholders from all over the food chain, from producers and students to entrepreneurs and researchers, meet each other. Together they will make and realise innovative plans for the sustainable food supply of the future. Food Forum provides a wide range of programs prior to and during Floriade on themes such as short chains, healthy food and living environment, but also meetings on topical or specialist subjects.
