Food & agriculture is a US$5 trillion industry that makes up 10% of consumer spending, 40% of employment and 30% of greenhouse gas emissions. It’s a particularly important industry for Latin America, representing 26% of the region’s total exports and 38% of its land use.
Yet, it’s still the least digitalized of all the major sectors of the global economy.
In the coming years, consumer preferences, resource constraints and a growing demand from global demographic trends will push the industry towards innovation along the entire value chain.
