What does this industry cover?
New technology is playing an important part in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industry, with innovations focussing on sustainable packaging, decreasing food waste, and farming and production processes.
As customers are becoming more conscious of health and environmental factors, new technologies are being developed to support these factors and market to these groups. Many customers now want to know what they are putting in and on their bodies, whether it is healthy, where and how it is sourced, and what goes into production. Consumers are also becoming more aware of global supply chains, and are moving to source their products locally impacting on local markets and resulting in an uptake of artisan food and beverage.
