Title in English: Partnerships for sustainability
Abstract / summary in English:
In 2002, the beer brewer Heineken got together with the Agrarische Unie and farmers in Flevoland, the Netherlands. Together they wanted to explore the possibilities of sustainable barley production. Each of the three partners had their own interests, but also had shared aims. Focusing on soil fertility as essential for developing resilience and sustainability, the partners are still working together.
