The Agrifood Cluster is a civil non-profit association whose mission is to boost the competitiveness in the food sector of Nuevo Leon following the triple helix method.
Founded in 2009 as an initiative of the government of Nuevo León to strengthen one of the 13 strategic sectors of the state of Nuevo León, based on the triple helix model, creating an ecosystem where companies, government and universities coexist, exchange information and share their best practices, gaining competitive advantages that a single company could not otherwise do on its own.
The benefits of clusters were seen in 1800 by Mr. Alfred Marshall, in 1970 an Italian economist Giacomo Becattini, noticed that successful companies were those that were within geographic groups. A decade later, Michael Porter, economist and professor at Harvard University, popularized the term Cluster.
