These challenges focus on economic sustainability in the face of rising resource costs and environmental sustainability, which is significantly affected by the impact of climate change on agriculture (loss of soil richness and structure, scarcity of water resources and adverse weather conditions), not forgetting the digitalisation of the sector, which is at the forefront of today's agri-food industry.
