our mission.

BambooLogic and its subsidiaries are establishing bamboo fields in Europe.
We are active in the (primary) processing and trade of bamboo.
In doing this, we are responding to the increasing European demand for bamboo.
We prefer to use degraded and/or abandoned land in regions where the agricultural sector and employment need a boost.

Establishing a new bamboo industry in Europe is disruptive and requires vision, experience, and determination.
Our diversified international team holds a cumulative experience of more than 100 years in bamboo, agribusiness & project management.
