From 16 to 18 May, Bilbao hosted a new Food 4 Future event, which is a professional platform that annually brings together industry professionals around the latest technologies and solutions to improve the competitiveness of the food and beverage sector.
The Food-tech revolution, in which the food industry is immersed, is a challenge that must be faced from all sectors of the industry. Correspondingly, it is at Food 4 Future where the latest innovations and trends that are driving the transformation of the food industry, such as 4.0 technologies, the concern for healthy eating, sustainable and efficient food production, or the fight against climate change, will be presented.
To this end, Food 4 Future is holding a Food-Tech congress with different presentations and round tables in which professionals from different companies can present the solutions that they are already putting into practice in their own sectors.
This was the case with David Pérez Carrera, Southern Europe Regional Manager and New Business Manager at Dacsa Group, who participated in the round table “Open business innovation processes a new relationship with startups to grow together”. He did so together with other professionals such as Rubén González from Mahou, Olallo Villoldo from Feedect and Ignacio Oroquieta from Le Room Service, moderated by Pedro Astals, Chairman of the Advisory Board of Tech Transfer Agrifood.
A round table in which they were able to highlight how open innovation processes have become a very useful tool for companies to capture value and accelerate their own innovation processes through collaboration with startups. Similarly, they have also become an opportunity for startups to win contracts that help them generate business and validate their products in real market conditions.
On the part of Dacsa Group, we participate in different startups that, thanks to the support of our group, are proposing innovative solutions to the challenges facing both the sector and society in general.
