The EU School fruit and vegetable programme is financed by the European Union. In 2021-2022 the scheme’s budget was approximately €5,5 million for our country. The department of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality is responsible for this scheme and outsourced its implementation to the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO). The Taste Lessons & EU-Schoolfruit Unit, part of Wageningen University & Research is the programme partner responsible for registration of the schools, communicating with them and developing educational tools. Eight designated fruit and vegetable suppliers are in charge of buying, transporting and delivering the fruit and vegetables to schools every week.
The EU-Schoolfruit programme is supported by the Netherlands Nutrition Centre and the Department of Health, Wellbeing and Sports.
