QOOT is the first Lebanese agri-food consortium that brings together Lebanese enterprises, rising SMEs, multinational companies, knowledge providers, support institutions, and investment entities to collaboratively catalyse and innovate the agri-food sector in Lebanon.
Initiated by Berytech and the Kingdom of the Netherlands with the active guidance of FoodValley, Netherland’s leading agri-food cluster, QOOT was born out of a resolve to equip Lebanon with the resources and processes that have made the Netherlands one of the leading agricultural innovators and food exporters worldwide. This goal tends to be reached through six missions:
- Promotion and marketing
- Business innovation support
- Key partnershipsLobbiyng
- Market access
Launched in February 2019, QOOT’s vision is to lead the agri-food innovation scene in the region and put Lebanon back on the global agri-food innovation map.
The Lebanese QOOT Cluster joined THE NEXT SOCIETY Cluster Booster Track in 2017.
