The food and agriculture industry is undergoing massive transformation. Companies face an increasingly complex operating environment, but have great opportunities for impact. Changes were already coming. The impact of COVID-19 has just accelerated the need for urgent action.
Unprecedented global economic shifts, changing consumer demands, an increasing focus on environmental stewardship, major supply chain advances and a wave of new technological disruptions are creating real opportunities and challenges for farmers and companies operating right across the food value chain.
Consumers are demanding ever more choice, transparency and sustainability and food companies are struggling to keep up. So, what strategies and tools do we need to help increase innovation throughout the food chain and drive action at every point from the field to the plate?
