About Our initiative wants to significantly strengthen the horticultural research and development agenda in the EU. There are many reasons why this is important as major global mega-trends are shaping society and markets. There is higher consumption and demand of fresh vegetables and fruit (including out of season demand) and this is triggered by trends like, urbanisation, growing middle classes, diet changes (e.g. vegan, vegetarien, low meat diets) and health issues (e.g. adult and childhood obesity, heart diseases, stress, chronic abdominal discomfort).
