The integration of digital technologies across food production, processing, distribution, and consumption constitutes the digital transformation of the food industry. The primary objectives of this digitalization are to increase transparency in the food supply chain, enhance efficiency, reduce expenses, and ultimately, elevate the overall customer experience.
To enhance agility and responsiveness towards rapidly evolving market conditions, food companies expedited their shift to cloud computing.
Facilitating growth and minimizing food waste, artificial intelligence technologies and real-time analytics are instrumental in enabling food companies to swiftly adapt to trends.
The COVID-19 pandemic emphasized the significance of catering to customers through online platforms, which became a vital aspect for all industries, including the food sector. Consequently, food companies witnessed a drastic transition from restaurants and institutions to retail markets.
The increasing demand for knowledge about the food products being purchased is compelling food companies to utilize advanced technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) to offer supply chain transparency to their customers.
