We will always need to eat. That’s why agriculture and food processing will always have a future. At the same time, the changes impacting these sectors are huge. Between now and 2030, the worldwide population will rise from 7.6 to 8.6 billion – an increase that represents an immense challenge for the food industry, especially at a time where paradigms are rapidly shifting. There is an expectation that we produce more food, while simultaneously polluting less and moving toward more transparency. We must re-examine our distribution channels, logistics chains and food processing systems, in a manner that prioritizes people and the environment. New solutions are needed, and innovation will be critical to address food sufficiency.
