With so many moving parts, trust, data and collaboration were key ingredients to success. Our challenge now is with a growing population, to produce more affordable and nutritious food from less, while also facing the challenges of covid, inflation, Ukraine and climate, all of which are affecting outcomes and increasing risk. Building resilience at every level across the food supply chain will be foundational to future success – transparent and timely data will be a key enabler.”
