The digitalisation and further processing of data through advanced tools can be of a great help in the decision-making process, leading to the interconnection of processes in what it is called smart processing methods. The European food industry is, however, still far from reaping up all the benefits of Artificial Integecente technologies, despite Europe having developed a robust computing infrastructure.

Digital transformation is specially challenging for the food industry, where more than 90% of the companies are SMEs with limited resources and/or digital capabilities.

To better understand the current situation, EIT Food together with several partners has gathered information on the level of digitalisation and use of Artificial Intelligence by the European food industry. A survey was sent to SMEs across Europe targeting the whole food value chain, from the primary to the retail sectors. In adition, several use-cases from market leaders have been gathered to understand the challenges gathered by the industry and the overall perception.

One of the key findings was that access to practical learning environments, the so called test beds, where SMEs can gain hands-on experience and get to understand the potential retun on investment is a key driver for the digital transformation of any industry, and the overall adoption of Artificial Intelligence tools.
