On December 11 and 12 2019, AgriFoodTech will connect top sectors “High Tech Systems & Materials” with “Agri & Food and Horticulture & Starting Materials”. The innovations within Agri and Food are developing rapidly. All with one goal: to anticipate on the world’s need for food, address scarcity and respond to the changing food chain.
During two days, everything revolves around new technology for the Agri & Food sector. Think of: sensors, drones, robots, big data, vision, LED lighting, system design & integration, automation, packaging, IT and food technology. AgriFoodTech is the platform where High Tech & ICT innovations for more efficient, effective, sustainable or even different production in the food industry, agriculture and (glass) horticulture are central. The latest high tech and IT innovations, products, services and (research) projects are presented both on the exhibition floor and in the congress.

Visitors of AgriFoodTech 2019
AgriFoodTech connects professionals from the entire food chain to inspire and inform about the latest technological innovations. And that is necessary, because the top sector Agri, Food & Horticulture and its suppliers face enormous challenges.
Due to the rising population in 2050 to 9 billion, there will be as much food needed worldwide over the next 40 years as the total that has been produced in the past 8,000 years. The result: climate change, scarcity of raw materials and land and a shortage of food. In addition, consumers are more demanding; there must be sufficient variation and choice, but this must also be healthy and safe. In short: the food chain is changing strongly and that is why the sector must produce more efficiently, effectively, sustainably or even differently. Technological innovations play an extremely important role in this. But what does this mean for the processes, products, services, business models and regulations? What is possible and what can you expect in the future? This participants will discover during AgriFoodTech.
