How is it possible that during the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Food is the most important sector in Europe and the least digitalized industry at the same time? The WEF (World Economic Forum) itself has recently underlined the important role of technology innovation in accelerating food system transformation and how relevant food systems are to all 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
An overview of all great challenges that the Food Industry has to face to solve problems such as growing population and lack of resources, opens the Event and stresses the importance of sustainable and healthy food.
Consumer and Food Production are then the two main characters on stage: on the one hand, the real needs and trends of people who deserve to live in a healthy and sustainable World, and on the other hand how food companies should transform their business models to be able to satisfy customers and make the World a better place to live in.
