Transition to a sustainable food and agricultural sector

The way we produce our food today will not be sustainable over the long term. Farmers are faced with low margins on their products. At the same time, they pay high prices for raw materials and labor. Society is also increasingly critical of agriculture’s greenhouse gas emissions, as well as the methods used to raise livestock. Then there are other major challenges, like the decline of soil health and biodiversity, plus the rapidly growing global population. But these challenges also present opportunities for new earning models, such as moving towards climate-neutral meat, milk or potatoes. Rabobank supports farmers in the Netherlands and abroad in this transition with financial solutions, our expansive knowledge of the sector and our network.
