On 8th February at 2-3pm CET, IF hosted a free webinar in partnership with Agmatix.
As challenges mount within the food and beverage sector, the need for enhanced visibility at the field level has never been more crucial. Companies are grappling with the complexities of fluctuating crop yields, diminishing soil health, and escalating threats posed by pests and diseases. Simultaneously, the increasing influence of legislation and heightened security necessitate clear reporting verification for sustainable sourcing efforts.
In this landscape, businesses urgently require innovative solutions to enhance crop yield sustainably, de-risk their supply chains, and ensure transparent reporting. This webinar spotlights the transformative potential of on-farm data technology as a key solution for businesses aiming to overcome obstacles and foster sustainable crop cultivation.
In this conversation at the intersection of technology, agriculture, and environmental stewardship, our panel discussed:
• The role of better data in mitigating risks in the supply chain, ensuring resilience and sustainability in sourcing • How data tools provide companies with transparent reporting and verification for sustainable sourcing efforts • Examples of case studies in which on-farm data technology has made a tangible impact in addressing agricultural challenges. • How these technologies and approaches positively impact supply chain management and corporate sustainability goals in the food and beverage sector.
We heard valuable insights from our panel of experts:
• Stacy Cushenbery, food system program manager North America, Oatly • Jonathan Sullivan, vice president sustainability & business development, Agmatix • Maurizio Comandone, global sustainability data analyst, McCain Foods
The webinar was moderated by Ian Welsh, publishing director, Innovation Forum.
This webinar was held in partnership with Agmatix.
