Innovative technology steers the green agenda in farming and food
On February 26, a new white paper from Food Nation is launched on innovative technology. It shows how Danish technology can contribute positively to the green transition, both national and internationally. There is an accelerating need for innovative technology, which can increase food production and enable more sustainable practices.
Denmark has a long history of developing new tools and techniques to overcome both national and international challenges in the food and agricultural production. The tradition for innovation is rooted in the Danish collaborative culture, and by working together and thinking ahead. The goal is to speed up the progress and bring new technologies faster to the market. Hence, innovative technology plays a central role in many of the solutions to global challenges.
“We find ourselves in a time where the global food supply is at a turning point. We need to produce more with less and Denmark’s food and agriculture sector play a vital role in this transition. We have a long track record as world leaders in innovative solutions and we have high ambitions for the green transition. Today’s launch of the white paper is a good opportunity to show the world how Danish knowledge and solutions can contribute to the food systems of tomorrow,” says Rasmus Prehn, Minister for Food, Agriculture and Fisheries.
The Danish government has set an ambitious climate goal: To reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 70% in 2030, based on the 1990 levels. Denmark’s food and agriculture sector play a vital role in reaching this goal together with the development of innovative technology.
The white paper shares insights into the innovative technology, which already makes the Danish food cluster a global front-runner and the visionary thinking that will become the next innovation.
A long track record for innovative and sustainable solutions
Denmark has a long history of developing new tools and techniques for overcoming challenges in food and agricultural production. Today, Denmark is a role model for high production yields and resource efficiency and, as such, a major exporter of technology that supports the green transition of the global food value chain.
