1. Description of the challenge

For DLL and its parent Rabobank, there is a focus on how to support the partners in their journey towards a more sustainable future. This includes lifecycle asset management and financing used equipment next to new equipment. Within the F&A GBU, we follow a horizon strategy that helps to segment the new business development activities. In the third horizon, we look at transformational and disruptive growth initiatives. One of the transitions that is currently happening is the food transition. This is a transition to a sustainable food system in which food is produced and consumed in a way that feeds current generations without compromising the economic, social, and environmental foundations for the nutrition of future generations.

The importance: The world faces the challenges of feeding a fast-growing population while ensuring we do this sustainably. The Global Business Unit (GBU) Food & Agriculture (F&A) within DLL helps agriculture and food business professionals and enthusiasts acquire equipment and technology to meet the sustenance needs of a growing global population. We consistently monitor the market and explore future trends to provide our customers with flexible financial solutions to help them keep up with the required pace of innovation in the food and agricultural sector.

Therefore, DLL has created a business case for which they need your help!

  • Business case start date: October 2 (online)
  • Business case submission date: October 6 (online)
  • Presentation moment: October 10 (in person)
2. Expected outcome

While DLL is primarily looking for a recommendation that answers these questions, a suggestion for a business model is highly appreciated.
