WHAT DO WE UNDERSTAND BY AGRI-FOOD SECTOR?

The agri-food sector is one that is made up of:

  • The primary sector: we would be talking specifically about forestry, livestock, agriculture, and fishing.
  • The agrarian industry or agribusiness: includes companies dedicated to the transformation of raw materials obtained in activities of the previous sector into semi-finished or processed products.

Therefore, and in summary, the agri-food sector is one that obtains and transforms the products obtained in forestry, fishing, agriculture, and livestock.

Inspectia & Control Services focuses on the last two, where we apply the latest techniques and technologies to achieve added value.

 

IN WHAT STATE IS THE SPANISH AGRIFOOD SECTOR IN THE EUROPEAN FRAMEWORK?

If we look at the sector through the prism of figures, it is clear that the agri-food industry represents a great source of income in the Spanish economy: it represents 7.6% of the country’s GDP.

This translates into more than 33,000 companies dedicated to the sector in 2019. With these figures, the agri-food industry rises as the first industrial sector in Spain, and as the second export sector, with exports worth € 17.6 billion. Furthermore, 16% of the net sales of the Spanish industry correspond to this sector.

When we talk about the food sector in the European framework, we are talking about a diversified sector that is made up mostly of SMEs. In addition, it is the main sector in countries such as Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Spain, France, and Italy.

If we compare it with the rest of the sectors, the food sector has more stable employment, employing 5.2 million people throughout Europe. Another figure that confirms that the food sector drives the European economy considerably is the percentage it represents of GDP: 3%.

With the help of Inspectia & Control Services, your company will become a key element in the Spanish engine. We will help you improve the efficiency of your production in order to become a benchmark in the European framework.

 

WHAT FUTURE aWAITS FOR THE AGRI-FOOD SECTOR?

Over centuries, farmers, herders, fishermen and foresters have developed diverse and locally adapted farming systems, managing them with ingenious techniques and practices that they have refined over the years. They have been responsible for providing humanity with an essential combination of social, cultural, ecological and economic services.

Industries emerged through an impressive process of coevolution between humans and nature over centuries of cultural and biological interaction and synergies. They represent the accumulation of experience of the rural population. Unfortunately, these agricultural systems are currently threatened by many factors, including climate change and increasing pressure on natural resources.

 

WHAT ARE THE KEYS FOR THE AGRI-FOOD SECTOR TO CONTINUE TO GROW?

For all the aforementioned, the agri-food sector must face the following points in order to continue growing and be able to absorb the needs of the current population and the one to come:

  • Search for more sustainable productions: the agri-food sector is one of the most exposed to the challenges and opportunities of sustainability. By having direct dependence and action on natural resources, it is a high impact industry. If we add this to secular demographic, socio-economic and climate trends, we have as a result an increase in pressure on the availability and sufficiency of resources.

The agri-food industry will have to make great efforts to adapt to these challenges in the medium and long term.

  • Change in consumption patterns: these changes are global and will affect trade flows. The increase in income and as a consequence, the standard of living in developing countries generates a dietary transition towards a greater consumption of meat, dairy products, fruits and vegetables.

This also affects trade flows and creates opportunities and changes for export and import. It is necessary for the agri-food industry to increase its efficiency to be able to face this fact.

In addition, society will demand new products, which will impact the development of food markets. Social perceptions affect the type and variety of foods consumed and demanded. The sector must adapt to these demands.

  • Application of new technologies in the sector: undoubtedly technology and innovation will play a key role in the sustainability of agri-food systems. To avoid a hyperinflation of prices and food shortages in the most vulnerable places, the increase in demand must be accompanied by an equivalent expansion in supply.
    The ability to absorb climate shocks and changes in demand requires increasing innovation and improving technology throughout the value chain.

Undoubtedly, the food sector during the last 20 years has maintained constant growth, and as indicated by the Ministry of Industry, Tourism and Commerce, it is one of the five strategic sectors for the economic recovery of the country due to its potential and towing capacity. But you must continue to seek excellence if you intend to remain so.

 

WHAT TECHNIQUES CAN HELP TO IMPROVE THE PRODUCTION OF THE AGRI-FOOD SECTOR?

The techniques that will help the agri-food sector continue to be a key engine for modern society will be those that favor the absorption of the growing demand for products.

Ultimately, they will be those techniques that favor an increase in the efficiency of agricultural holdings. For example, in agriculture we have techniques such as conservation agriculture, application of smart irrigation and phytosanitary systems, use of precision agriculture, … in general, techniques that with the help of Research, development and innovation (R + D + I) manage to get the most out of the crop fields.

In the livestock sector, these would be all those techniques that make the entire food chain improve hygiene and safety. In addition, the search for the best possible food must be added, working hand in hand with the animal feed production industry. These types of practices ensure that the quality of the product is affected in a positive way.
