Key Findings
Supply chain crisis

The increasing cost of raw materials, shipping, labour wages and energy crisis, further fuelled by the war in Ukraine, have led to a global supply chain crisis that drives strong price increases and puts farmers’ profits under severe pressure. To secure domestic supply, governments respond by limiting their export activity.

Feeding the growing population

China is the world’s largest importer as domestic demand for meat and high-quality crops soars driven by the country’s population growth and expansion of middle class. This creates an opportunity among Western producers, especially in Latin America, to expand their exporting activity there.

Adoption of digital technologies

The supply chain crisis further threatened by the increasing impact of climate change is raising concerns about future food security. To address the issue, governments are increasingly investing in the promotion of technological development, particularly through digitalisation, in order to increase productivity.

Investment in sustainability

In light of global warming and increasingly adverse weather events as well as the outbreak of animal diseases, governments and agriculture producers are expected to continue investing in more sustainable farming practices, focusing on smart water irrigation and regenerative agricultural practices.
