Innovation in Agribusiness
The Agri-Foods industry today is faced with new key issues, related to the increase of the population and the increase in world demand. The competition has intensified with the evolution of the manufacturing processes, on areas as diverse as security, health, traceability, respect for the environment as well as the new expectations of consumers.
In this context, differentiating by price is no longer systematically synonymous with success, and innovation takes a central place in the strategies of major industrial groups.
Innovating has in effect become a major lever for the creation of added value on a market of large volumes.
Follow the new trends and collaborate around relevant R&D projects
Many projects nowadays concern the transformation and conservation of raw materials, as well as the improvement of production processes and the recovery of waste. Developing high-performance products both in terms of health and their environmental impact is also at the centre of much research.
These projects are as much an opportunity for collaboration in Research & Development, because they involve varied skills and expertise, not necessarily available internally. Developing its R&D partnerships has become crucial when it comes to breaking out of its core business, to innovate and respond to new expectations.

Many businesses are today confronted with these issues, but are sometimes hindered by a lack of perspective on the players who make up their scientific and technological environment. Who do they call upon? How do they identify and understand this ever-changing environment? How then do they avoid being limited in their approaches to innovation?
Simply by the use of suitable tools.
