In an area rich in food history, a magical place with significance for the future is beginning to emerge.

In the Food Valley region in Ede, close to Wageningen University & Research, the former Maurits Zuid barracks site is being transformed into the ultimate food meeting place in the Netherlands – the World Food Center (WFC). A place where food businesses and organisations can set up shop, where visitors can learn all about our food in an informal manner, and where people can live, work and feel at home.
