Topic 2019

Yesterday. Today. Tomorrow. Innovations in the food industry — 100 years of Anuga

Many of the food trends of the 21st century would be unthinkable without digital innovations. Smart farming promises to boost yields and make cultivation more sustainable. Blockchain makes supply chains more transparent, and the potential of dynamic pricing can only be fully exploited with the help of AI algorithms. However, innovations are more than just bits and bytes, zeros and ones. Over the past 100 years, many bright thinkers have developed ideas that have made the food industry what it is today: high-powered, innovative and progressive. But what has to be done to make sure it stays that way? How is the food industry positioned today, what do people expect of it, what challenges must be overcome, and what lessons can we learn from the past?
