The boom in food engineering and agriculture technology, or AgriTech is rewriting the playbook for one of the world’s oldest, and most polluting industries.
Precision agriculture, for example, is helping farmers make better decisions with information about their soil, water, crop and climatic conditions. This is especially crucial in countries where smallholder farmers still struggle to get their yield up, to meet rising demand.
On the ecological front, the growth of alternative proteins represents a sustainable alternative to business-as-usual animal agriculture. Many start-ups and entrepreneurs in this growing space are now working to solve agricultural challenges such as low agricultural productivity, poor efficiency in the supply chain and lack of access to credits and loans.
This has led to the sector witnessing an investment boom, despite the pandemic. What are some of the unrealised potential in the food and AgriTech sectors? Can it evolve to solve the impending food security crises?
Join us for this inaugural Lunch & Learn virtual session where we will host a relaxed chat with experts on understanding AgriTech’s current state of play and map the outlook for this exciting industry.
