Rethinking the Agrifood Industry in the Digital Age


The Agri-food sector is the engine of European food systems and it contributes significantly to growth and jobs. Nowadays, the agri-food chain industries are not only expected to provide food for all but also to drive innovation and to help the Region achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Furthermore, Agri-food systems will play a key part in delivering the EU’s ambition of a carbon-neutral economy by 2050 through reduced emissions and, especially, through mitigation efforts and increased biomass production.

Digital technologies are one of the most important recent innovations for all actors in the agri-food chain. Beyond assisting in primary production they have immense potential to support many elements of the rural economy, from food supply chain management to new business development.

There are new opportunities for all operators in the food value chain. New technologies combined with increasing public awareness and demand for sustainable food will benefit all stakeholders. Med Business Days 2020 will emphasis the major challenges facing the sector and the pathways in the Digitising Agrifood. The event is about paving paths about integrating partnerships, boosting innovation, enhancing cross-sectoral cooperation and dynamically debating the near-future of the production, processing and distribution of value-added agrifood products in the EuroMed Region.
