The Mastercouse group consists of 15 inspiring horticultural managers between 25 and 40 years old, who will soon play a leading role in the future development of vegetable production in their country/region in an innovative and sustainable way. During their visit at Ridder, Chief Innovation Officer Joep van den Bosch kickstarted an inspiring session program in line with the ‘Helping You Grow Your’ brand promise of Ridder. The group discussed the necessity to adapt technology and knowledge to local markets. As well as this, the impact of important future developments in the field of data analysis, AI, machine learning and the autonomous greenhouse provided inspiring food for thought.
