Knowledge for better food systems

Digital collaboration in the food and drink supply chain

This report from the UK’s Internet of Food Things Network Plus discusses how digital technologies can help food system actors to collaborate on addressing food system challenges such as traceability, food safety, efficiency, sustainability, health and waste.

Examples include online farmers’ markets that sell directly to customers, an app to track cocoa beans as they move through a supply chain free of slave labour, sharing data on cattle genetics to improve milk quality, and using data to assist logistical planning for a reusable food container startup.

Region: 

Europe

Europe is the world's second-smallest continent by surface area, covering just over 10 million square kilometres or 6.8% of the global land area, but it is the third-most populous continent after Asia and Africa, with a population of around 740 million people or about 11% of the world's population. Its climate is heavily affected by warm Atlantic currents that temper winters and summers on much of the continent. In the European Union, farmers represent only 4.7% of the working population, yet manage nearly half of its land area.
