Barclays vision is to support UK Agriculture to become the most digitally savvy farm force in Europe. Barclays are supporting this through various use cases, research, projects, events, collaborations to enable farmers and the wider supply chain to understand how technology can support them. We at Barclays are highly interested in building relationships with universities, researchers, start-ups, enterprise companies and anyone who is interested in AgriTech, no matter what your skill/knowledge levels are.

What is AgriTech and FoodTech?

AgriTech is the use of technology, and technological innovation to improve the efficiency, sustainability, and productivity of agriculture. It can be used for a wide range of purposes, from growing more food with less space, less water, and produce more yield. It can also be the use of robots for planting or picking crops, or milking cattle. It can also be the use of big data, machine learning and AI to help farmers make better decisions on how to improve their business.

FoodTech is the use of technology from farmgate to plate, to bin, and everything inbetween. The biggest impact FoodTech is having on the value chain is in both enabling better transparency, and combating the fight against food wastage.

With an additional 2.3bn people to feed by 2050, we need to be able to produce more food, with less resource, in an environmentally sustainable way, and we want to support the industry achieve these goals.
