The security of supply in the food industry is increasingly at risk. A threatening development is emerging simultaneously in several areas of the highly sensitive logistics and production processes. Raw materials, energy and critical operating resources are becoming increasingly scarce. Companies are therefore challenged to look for innovative solutions to protect the stability and resilience of their value chains. The design of ecosystems and cooperations as well as the optimization of the international footprint in order to improve access to scarce resources and distribute them efficiently are gaining particular importance here. At the same time, the potential of digital solutions, smart technologies, lean, agile planning and production methods, and the circular economy must be activated to reduce resource consumption and optimize the product portfolio.
