Conferences & Congresses

"Food4Future" - Compact conferences at AnugaFoodTec 2022

The global population is currently around 8 billion. The figure should reach almost 10 billion by 2050. The majority of people will live in cities. And everyone wants to eat. The "Earth Overshoot Day" comes earlier every year. This development will further intensify the current challenges in the food system.

Even today, food production is responsible for around 1/3 of all greenhouse gas emissions. This effect will intensify with a growing global population. In addition to this, an ever increasing number of people live in urban areas. Production and consumption have become decoupled, and global supply chains are becoming increasingly fragile. Add to this challenges like food waste, packaging trash and social exploitation.

Although there is theoretically enough food today for everyone in the world, it is not equally available to all people. On the one hand, around 800 million people suffer from hunger. Another billion people suffer from vitamin and mineral deficiencies.

At the same time, many people have a surplus of food. A total of 2.1 billion people are overweight, especially in the industrial countries. A significant quantity of food is also thrown away there.

All of these different tasks can only be mastered with the help of innovative technological approaches. It is necessary to break out of the existing structures in order to set out on new paths. The need for inspiration, cooperation and expertise is increasing constantly, and new actors and business areas are establishing themselves on the market.

Thanks to an increasing convergence of technologies, we will see an increasing number of innovative, sustainable and pioneering concepts in the coming years. Whether the so-called "Internet of Food", meaning the closer, data-based networking of the entire value creation chain, Cultivated Food, Personalised Nutrition, Vertical Farming, or Functional Food, all of these concepts have a revolutionary potential.

With this format, we wish to discuss the possibilities for a sustainable transformation of the food system, bring together established providers with the new generation of "FoodTech" companies and point out innovations for the future.

Next Generation FoodTech

Next Generation FoodTech

With the aid of new processes and the usage of novel sources, foodstuffs (incl. ingredients) will in future be produced in a more resource-saving manner. A new value creation can thus unite the needs of mankind and the environment.

Functional Food

Functional Food

The merging of technology and food is leading to food replacing medicines to an increased extent. The food and health care sectors are in the meantime inseparable and this is pushing the functional meaning of food.

Functional Food
Alternative Protein Sources

Alternative Protein Sources

According to the FAO, three earths would be necessary to feed the world in 2050 if the meat consumption stays at the same level. The research, development and establishment of new sources for the future protein supply is thus necessary to a significant extent.

Brand empowerment

Brand Empowerment

The development of new forms of nutrition is driven by technology and customer demand. On the one hand, "Food is becoming a lifestyle" because many consumers are occupying themselves more intensively with the food industry and concepts like "free-from" and "clean food" are gaining significance.

The future: Digitalisation of the production

Industry 4.0 opens up fully new opportunities to the companies of the food and beverage industry in terms of networking and the automation of their processes. The prerequisite for this is the connection of intelligent production, packing and logistics systems - the foundation stone for a smart factory.

The exhibitors of Anuga FoodTec bring all key sections of the industry together in one location and show live and in action how the digital transformation can be successfully designed and implemented - across all industries and processes.

Don't forget!

The next Anuga FoodTec takes place from 26rd to 29th April, 2022.
