Dutch farm exports reached a record €79m last year, a rise of 5% on 2013, says junior economic affairs minister Sharon Dijksma.

 The Netherlands is second only to the US in terms of agricultural exports and that is something which should be cherished, she said.

At the end of last year, it emerged the Netherlands had overtaken Mexico to become the world's biggest exporter of tomatoes.
