About AgriEn

Who We Are

AgriEn Network (Agribusiness and Agri Energy) is focused on accelerating the development and delivery of innovative and sustainable interventions in food security by various partners. AgriEn Network was established in 2020 following the transition of AgriProFocus Global Network into the Netherlands Food Partnership (This realisation birthed an independent localised social enterprise). NFP and AgriEn Network have a common focus on achieving Food security from a food system approach through a collaboration.
