Localizing the supply chain is a global problem and AgTech companies are getting pretty good at solving some of these issues. We feel like there is some pretty good collaboration amongst our partnerships.
Each year, a Trends Council of more than 50 Whole Foods Market team members, including local foragers, regional and global buyers, and culinary experts compile trend predictions based on decades of experience and expertise.
While yields are attractive, vertical farms have significant capital required for infrastructure, high land costs, and of course significant energy demands. The reality of these COG dynamics requires that vertical farm operators work hard to optimize their production.
If we've learned anything from the global pandemic, it's that our current food supply chain is unstable. In the EU alone, lockdowns have kept laborer's from crops, farmers have been unable to get produce to market.
Buyers and markets are changing along with demand. To meet the needs of a global marketplace, agricultural producers have to understand how logistics processes can reshape production, shipping, storage, and more.
Farmers are natural at solving problems and constantly need to innovate and maneuver through various climates and landscapes. They have combined agriculture and technology to be able to feed the ever-increasing population.
Fifth Season selected for its differentiated end-to-end model of robotic-based vertical farming; major distribution expansion brings the freshest-available produce to consumers across Cleveland, Columbus and Pittsburgh
The emerging solutions will help to improve crop yield and quality; optimize production efficiency and costs; reduce waste and carbon emissions from agricultural operations; further enhance food safety and security; and strengthen overall farm management.
Carrier and AWS Collaborate to Transform How Food, Medicine, Vaccines, and Other Perishable Goods Are Moved and Monitored Globally
Carrier's new Lynx digital platform will provide customers with greater connectivity, visibility, and intelligence across the cold chain to improve safe transport of temperature-controlled items
The fresh food market has seen rapid development. Although digitalization has eliminated different hindrances and disentangled the way toward ordering produce from any corner of the world, exporting these items is still an arduous errand.
Procurant Trace™ tracks the origin and distribution of fresh produce from farm to consumer to enhance trust and safety across the food supply chain.
As some states start lifting COVID-19 stay-at-home restrictions, the agriculture industry continues to struggle under a largely shut-down America. The industry is experiencing losses in the billions between the dairy, meat, and produce sectors.
In spring, farmers' stores of winter veg will be running low and the new season's crops are not yet ready to be harvested. This period is called the "hungry gap". During the hungry gap, Britain relies even more heavily on imports to feed itself.
The delicacy of our food supply networks has been exposed, and now is the time to reflect on how our systems could change for the better, as well as our behaviour as consumers - demonstrated by those who have pledged to support local businesses more during this time.
This global pandemic has not only highlighted health implications of today's highly connected world, but has also identified issues with supply chain and product lines. It has shown how society behaves in times of crises - both the good, and the not-so-good.
