Abstract A delegation from Wageningen University and Research Centre visited Egypt in May 2010 in a first step to promote strategies that are able to increase the sustainability of the horticultural production chain in Egypt, with a focus on the improvement of the resource use efficiency. In this strategic thinking, People, Planet and Profit are analyzed in terms of Production, Marketing and Knowledge. Most likely elements at the farm level are water, nutrients and crop protection. Incentive-based change of behaviour is key to the establishement of a more sustainable horticultural supply chain that functions well in the market. Knowledge is the foundation of any advancement. A wide range of representatives from the public and private sector were met with, both in a broad brainstorm meeting and in small focused visits. The promotion of sustainability in the horticultural production chain was widely welcomed, and various parties indicated their support.
