Client fidelity, innovation and being attractive are the leitmotifs of the AGRIFOOD industry. Although, digitalization has been present in this industrial sector for a long time (performance requires it), it would be boosted by the inherent solutions of Industry 4.0 whether it be the use of AI and Deep Learning in raising expectations or by a connected factory bringing flexibility and product personalization; the AGRIFOOD industry has a trump card to play when confronted by the internet giants.
In this context, Industry 4.0 brings with it a flotilla of solutions. They will enable, in the decade to come, the significant challenges to be addressed. These are ever stronger due to competition from European countries having lower production costs, deindustrialization, new actors shaking up the present codes of behavior, more intrusive consumer-actors and stricter regulations, particularly concerning traceability:
