Description: 
The new extract library currently covers three quarters of the Dutch biodiversity. Goal is to create innovative product-market combinations. From mid-2015 this unlocks for (potential) customers the enormous diversity of active ingredients from horticultural crops. Dutch approach is to connect gardeners as a supplier to manufacturers of pharmaceuticals, agro-chemicals, color, flavors and fragrances, cosmetics, food (supplements) and animal feed (additives). Now, a large part of the components of horticultural crops is not known. The extract library bridges the gap between the suppliers of plants and the customers, who can screen extracts of various plant materials for efficacy.
Goal/Aim:
