COVID-19 Focus: Accelerating Change through Technology in the Food & Nutrition Industry

About this webinar

The COVID-19 pandemic is driving transformation in the food and nutrition industry at a pace never witnessed before. Businesses are rushing to take steps to adapt their offerings in the face of this new landscape, one that could be altered permanently even after we make it out the other side.

The closing of borders, shortage of workers, and lockdown of out-of-home channel are posing immediate challenges to the highly globalized food sector and thus to our food supply itself.

These new ways of producing, sourcing, processing, distributing and consuming healthier foods could become the “new normal” post-pandemic. 

In this webinar we will spotlight 3 megatrends to future-proof your company…

1.      Reimagining and restructuring the supply chain

The current crisis has shown that the world's dependence on global supply chains is a weak link. One major take away for the food & beverage industry post-pandemic will be how to build more resilient supply chain systems. We will spotlight some of the up-and-coming technology solutions that can help the industry to build a more distributed, resilient, smaller scale and locally powered supply-chain while looking to the global reach when needed.

2.      Digitalization to take center stage

Disruptive technologies that in the past were considered novel may now be an imperative if a business is to succeed in the “next normal”. New digital technologies - artificial intelligence, smart data, blockchain, robotisation and precision farming to name a few - present companies with exciting opportunities to boost their productivity and reduce their costs.

3.      Functional ingredients to boost immunity

We will see consumers take even greater interest in food and food safety, as well as care more about their overall health. We have noted an increased interest in immune health which will lead to even greater awareness of food functionality.
