We would like to invite you to our very exciting event ‘Innovations in the Food & Agri Industry’. 

Interested in learning more about robots, big data, vision, LED lighting, artificial intelligence and packaging? The innovations within the Food & Agri industry are developing rapidly. All with one goal: to anticipate on the world’s need for food, respond to the changing food chain and to address scarcity. More efficient, effective, sustainable and new ways of production are essential for both machine builders and food processors as for professionals in agriculture and horticulture.
