According to the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) projections for 2050, food production needs to increase by 70% to feed the growing population. However, food production is currently one of the sectors with the greatest environmental impact.
The food industry is facing increasingly more complex challenges, such as the difficulty to access raw materials, the great competition, the growing needs and requirements of the market and of consumers, along with the increasingly more demanding policies and legislation regarding environmental protection and sustainability of industrial activities.
This context means that the future of the food sector involves competitiveness models based on efficiency and sustainability, but also increasing the value added of its products. Only the combination of efficiency and value generation can guarantee the sustainability of the food sector, its growth, international leadership and for the sector to continue to be strategic due to its contribution to the economy and employment.
