Agricultural production and food supply are facing unprecedented pressures. A growing population, rapid urbanisation and changing consumption patterns will continue to increase pressure on food systems going forward. How can that be changed?

The Food 4.0: Technology in Agriculture and Food report is built on a research programme undertaken by Economist Impact, and commissioned by SGInnovate, between July and October 2021. It evaluates the adoption and potential of emerging technologies in the agriculture and food sectors. The report is based on an extensive literature review, a primary research survey and an expert interview programme. Dr. Kerstin Burseg, Programme Manager Innovation EIT Food Central, contributes her key findings on innovation at large companies.

“Big companies should have the willingness to give up some of the control in order to allow creativity and innovation to grow.

The report also highlights EIT Food's platform FoodUnfolded as an example of a digital tool building public trust around innovations. FoodUnfolded uses scientific knowledge to increase awareness about the food on our plate and the impact its production has on people, communities and the planet.
