WHY AN AGRI-FOOD TECH EVENT?
Climate Change and Global warming
Rising temperatures, changing weather patterns, floods, droughts etc. leading to disruption in food production.
By 2050 more than 2/3rds of the population will be living in urban areas (ie. 6.6bn). Rural-urban balance shifts will continue to impact food consumption patterns; logistics, transportation etc.
Tangible Agreed Goals (From Global to Local) Driven by international recognition; goal setting and policy frameworks
Sustainable Development Goals - aims to achieve food security, improved nutrition and promoting sustainable agriculture by 2030
Paris Agreement on climate change
New Varieties of Foods And Production Techniques Driven by surge in agricultural R&D
After a period of stagnation in the 90's, global expenditure increased by an average of 3% a year with China and India accounting for 1/2.
Private investment increasing, as a % of total spend (more than 20% in 2008); a major shift: - patents; new IP's attractive returns and high social impact.
Produce Differently; Increase Efficiencies In Food Chain - Driven by technology & digitalization
Technologies such as AI, autonomous robots, IT, cloud computing, mobile technology, big data, analytics, smart farming are impacting agriculture for the future across the value chain.
Heightened consumer awareness and shifting mind sets demand greater transparency, traceablility and sustainability. Technology and digitalisation are disrupting how, what and where we grow our food along with how it is purchased, prepared and consumed; leading to new varieties of food and production techniques.
The resurgence in Agriculture 4.0 and the Future of food is transforming the food ecosystem leading to new business models and integrated, collaborative partnerships.
Developing long term solutions to address Asia's food future is needed and will require companies across the value chain to change, adapt, embrace technology and innovate to stay relevant and competitive.
