EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

How can a small population, on a large island, protect its food production from diseases and economic aggression in an age of "free" trade?

What keeps us from growing more food - when we know that we can? Why is there sometimes a gap between the potential of our land and the actual food production that takes place?
