The development of food retailing in The Netherlands
The Netherlands can be characterised as a small, heavily urbanised country, with a quickly growing population. On one hand the population is very young, + 28% below 14 years of age, on the other hand rather old; 14% over 65 years. The western part of the country is threatening to become one very big conurbation, consisting of 6 or more major cities with Amsterdam, The Hague , and Rotterdam as centres of gravity. Contrary to the existing image abroad of Holland the main sources of income are industry and services.
