World demand for food will grow significantly over the next several decades as a result of population growth and a burgeoning middle class in the developing world. To capitalize on these opportunities, companies must manage increasing constraints and pressures, including on-going commodity price volatility, environmental and sustainability concerns and regulations, unpredictable weather events and evermore intense competition.
They need to achieve greater efficiencies, for example producing more food using less land, water, energy and other resources, with more intelligent distribution and integration along the value chain, reducing waste and spoilage between the farm, the retail shelves and ultimately the consumer. Information Technology is playing a critical role in key areas such as enabling seed genetics, improving farm planning and decision making, trading, traceability and price and production optimization for food processors.
