The agri-food market worldwide

The agri-food sector is currently undergoing major upheavals and is having to reinvent itself accordingly. The major transformations at play demand responses to the evolving social, economic and environmental contexts. Supply chains, distribution formats and food processes are at the core of the new approaches that need to be implemented in order to guarantee the future of food production.

Indeed, there is a growing strategic trend among consumers: they are both highly attentive to their food budgets and extremely concerned about the conditions of food production (industrial risks, environmental consequences, etc.) and the working conditions of employees. What preoccupies them more than anything is responsible and sustainable consumption, particularly against the backdrop of the social networks and the media coverage of the health scandals that serve as acceleration factors for this model.

To move toward a cleaner economy, the French Government has determined guidelines and objectives affecting the companies in the sector. How to produce better? How to consume better? How to manage waste better? Eco-design is one of the answers on which the food industry companies are pinning their hopes. From production through to the recycling of packaging, the entire life cycle of products is concerned. Faced with these challenges, professionals are on the lookout for solutions and innovations that will revolutionise the market.
