World Food Center Ede
In the city of Ede, De Zwarte Hond is working on the transformation of the former Maurits Zuid barracks into the World Food Center (WFC). A new, lively district will emerge here, where everything revolves around food. Companies from the food sector, various knowledge institutions and consumers will congregate here to create and share knowledge. The 28-hectare site is strategically located in the heart of the Foodvalley Region, near Ede-Wageningen station. The connections to the Randstad and Germany are good. It’s an ideal place to live, work and stay: a second focal point in the city, next to the existing centre.
From the station – which is being renovated – visitors will soon walk through a new city park to the heart of the WFC. Here, between the national monuments of the Mauritskazerne and Friso barracks, they will find an important eye-catcher and food attraction: the World Food Center Experience, in which the Netherlands will showcase itself as the global frontrunner of the agri-food sector. Around it there will be restaurants, a hotel and conference centre, apartments, business premises and places to exercise and relax. Further away from the area’s core, the emphasis is increasingly on living and working.
