As our global population hurtles towards the 10 billion mark by 2050, the hunger for food is reaching unprecedented levels. It's no secret that the food and agriculture industry reigns supreme as the largest on our planet, catering to a loyal customer-base of 7.9 billion people.
But with this soaring demand comes a cascade of challenges that threaten to shake the very foundations of food production. From population growth to climate change impacts, food wastage in the supply chain to the environmental toll of production, and farming industries on the decline around the world driven by younger generations opting for non-agricultural career paths – the stakes have never been higher. That's why the convergence of food and technology has become an urgent imperative.
