The need for evolving our agri-food system towards a more sustainable model with a lower environmental impact, together with the availability of new technologies at a competitive cost, have become divers for innovation in the agri-food sector. This fact adds to the intrinsic characteristics of the sector, which offers products with high standards of quality, safety and health to the consumers, as well as to the social demand of more sustainable products and alternatives to animal origin.

As a result, the new innovation trends include plant-based or biotech alternatives to dairy and meat products. In vitro models of increased performance reduce the necessity for animal testing. These trends offer an answer to the current social and environmental challenges. In addition to that, the digital technologies have revolutionized the food production, boosting the benefits for the health of people and the planet.
