Developing and sharing knowledge together
Kekkilä-BVB strongly believes in developing knowledge together and sharing knowledge with the sector. This is the reason to seek cooperation with innovative and independent partners such as Delphy. As an innovation partner of Delphy ISFC, BVB Substrates can be in direct contact with research and developments in this sector through the new berry center, which is to become a ‘hotspot for the berry sector’.
Delphy Innovative Soft Fruit Centre
Delphy Innovative Soft Fruit Center (Delphy ISFC) functions as a center for knowledge and innovation in berries, whereby the center should become a meeting place within the sector. Knowledge development and knowledge dissemination are brought together on an international scale. This is a unique way of acquiring knowledge due to the connection with the sector and the cooperation with partners. Knowledge dissemination takes place through international events, knowledge days and other initiatives where research results are shared.
As an innovation partner, Kekkilä-BVB invests through BVB Substrates in projects that contribute to an innovative berry sector. In addition, Delphy will also use innovative growing media from the BVB Substrates portfolio in the studies. The focus of the Delphy ISFC Innovation Partners is on, among other things, resilient cultivation, development of new cultivation strategies and optimization of berry cultivation, and on themes such as cultivation under LED lighting and digitization.
