Farm-to-fork strategies have taken centre stage in the food industry, emphasising the importance of ethical, healthy and sustainable value chains. To maintain profitability while meeting the challenges, producers are under pressure to improve productivity across various fronts. This includes enhancing food production, ensuring animal welfare, preserving a sustainable environment and reducing energy usage and water waste. To address these pressing issues, the industry requires solutions that bring vital improvements in the following areas:


Sustainability in food production encompasses a holistic approach to harmonising from the field to production and distribution while mitigating environmental impact and promoting long-term well-being. It involves meticulously managing resources and processes​ to achieve energy efficiency, resource optimisation, waste reduction, innovative production techniques and continuous​ improvement.


Efficiency in food production is a strategic and systematic approach that aims to optimise processes,​ resource use and overall operational efficiency to achieve higher productivity, reduce costs and improve product quality. Through better efficiency, food manufacturers can gain a competitive advantage, reduce environmental impact and contribute to a more sustainable and resilient industry.​

Food safety

Food safety in food processing means that automated systems, technologies and processes used in food​ production maintain and even improve the safety and quality of the final products. The sensors used in the process can​ self-monitor their status to ensure accuracy and reliability in meeting food safety standards. Holistic digitalisation solutions​ can improve traceability by accurately recording and tracking the flow of ingredients and products.​
