The first edition of the FOOD 4 FUTURE EXPO FOODTECH 2021 was held in June. This event will mark a turning point in the food industry.
The food we choose and the way we produce, prepare, cook and store and keep it makes us an integral and active part of the way in which an agri-food system works. Temperature is key to ensure the freshness of perishable products, food supplies and product care.
The COVID19 pandemic has highlighted the fragility of our societies: with the increase in food insecurity and inequality between people.
Videos, webinars, digital trade fair stand, all in innovative and informative offers and ideas to provide you with valuable developments and solutions at this digital exhibition.
Engineering, like so many other sectors, can and must collaborate in our society’s sustainable development. To this end, technological advances such as the cold chain and the automation of agricultural processes have helped produce more and more food with fewer energy and material resources since their introduction.
At this point, only a very few may be surprised by the need to promote a change in the development and consumption model we are immersed in as a species due to the enormous impact that our activity is generating on the world.
With the AKOGAS NDIR CO2 gas sensor, we help to ensure a safe and reliable environment, reducing the ability of the coronavirus to spread.
