Be part of the protein revolution and get inspired by Tom and Bart Grobben. These two young innovative farmers tell how they transformed the milk business of their parents into a new business model. They believe in local, transparent and ustainable products. They created the first Dutch plant based Milkman for production from seed-to-product. A Short Food Chain, in order to deliver delicious local flavoured, Twente Soy Milk to consumers.

The EUregions talk comes at a moment when there is growing interest and need for innovations in Food Production in order to create short food chains, partly as a result of external circumstances such as Covid-19. The workshop will address this actuality. Th!nk East Netherlands will facilitate an online discussion and interactive session with your participation simultaneously. Companies and research institutions in East Netherlands are innovation leaders in Agro-Food. Tom and Bart Grobben, two young innovative dairy farmers created a futureproof business model in addition to dairy farming. Their company “The New Milkman” has the ambition to revolutionize the alternative dairy sector. They created the first Dutch plant based seed-to-product chain. The consumer receives locally grown and produced dairy alternatives, based on soya beans. Even though the Dutch weather is not ideal for soy production, the Wageningen University-educated brothers will demonstrate: anything is possible!

The session will take place via Zoom on Wednesday, 21th of October 2020 from 17:30 to 18:00. You can find the details of the session at: EWRC 2020
