European Bamboo Plantation Program
BambooLogic Europe BV
BambooLogic Europe BV is active throughout Europe from its headquarters in the Netherlands. The company has favourable land options in Portugal and Spain for developing bamboo plantations. Also other countries as Italy, France and Greece could be explored.
After the successful launch of the start-up in Portugal, it is our ambition to plant thousand hectares of bamboo and to establish primary processing factories.
Since we are backed by the largest European stock of young bamboo plants, we are able to customize a part of the plantation for the special needs of certain clients. One of the most versatile varieties is the Phyllostachys Edulis Moso.
Growing bamboo in Europe means that we help the climate, create jobs that are desperately needed in rural areas in Europe and provide the European market with one of the sustainable commodities for the future. Besides that, since the first and main market will be Europe, transport costs and import taxes are minimized, quality controls are made easier and currency fluctuations have no effect on the margin.
The plantation will be launched in the Alcoutim region in the southern of Portugal. The team is backed by world renown bamboo experts and collaborates with Europe’s biggest bamboo grower to maximize the success of this venture.
Administration, business development, sales and marketing will be organised out of the Netherlands office.
The climate in Southern Portugal has proved excellent for our varieties of bamboo and the climate and soil composition of the selected land is favourable. The amount of rainwater in these areas is traditionally low but during the dry periods irrigation systems are used.
Besides creating sustainable profit, it is a goal to educate and specialise employees, in order to subsequently employ them at future BambooLogic plantations. The first year, the plantation will be stabilized, and all activities will be fine-tuned before the expansion to 2.000 hectares.
Phase 2 will be launched after planting in phase 1 and consists of the expansion with 1.850 hectares to the total of 2.000.
Besides the company owned plantations, BambooLogic also plants bamboo in collaboration with land owners in different regions in Europe. This has either a commercial, carbon emission management, bio diversity or other goal; or a combination of these. Anyway, if it serves people, planet and / or profit BambooLogic is open to third party projects. If opportunities are presented we are open to discuss this opportunity.
will consist the full completion of the program by initiating new plantations in several countries and the establishment of the primary processing factories. In a later stage primary processing can lead to joint-ventures for further processing.
