Bilbao will host the Food 4 Future World Summit for the next few years, the innovation event to transform the food and beverage industry through new technologies, solutions and new automation systems. From June 15 to 17, 2021, Bilbao Exhibitions Center (BEC) will bring together professionals from the entire value chain of the food sector to publicize the latest technological solutions, innovations and trends that will mark a before and after in this industry in full transformation.

From the cluster we join this event that will allow us to face the most important challenges that affect the food and beverage industry.

How will we feed ourselves in the coming years when we are already more than 10 billion people in the world? How can the sustainability of the global food system deliver healthy nutrition in the next 15 years? How will technology change the agri-food value chain?

In a sector that represents 11% of world GDP, and with an expected demand growth of 70% between now and 2025, technology is configured as a key element and indispensable ally to face the current challenges of the food sector. For this reason, the Packaging Cluster joins the event's Supporting Partners program and we invite our associates to remain very attentive to learn about the solutions that from June 15 to 17 we will be able to share at Food 4 Future - Expofoodtech.

Technologies 4.0, the concern for healthy eating, the sustainable and efficient production of food or the fight against climate change are some of the aspects that are profoundly transforming the food sector. In fact, the digitization of the European food industry will have an impact of more than 300,000 million euros between 2021 and 2025.

In this scenario, Food 4 Future 2021 is configured as the meeting point for any professional in the food sector in which to acquire the most innovative solutions in foodtech, robotics and automation, food safety, and processing and packaging techniques for the different segments of the industry.

The event will also host the Food 4 Future World Summit, the largest European congress in which to discover new trends and consumption habits, as well as success stories and applications of technology to achieve a more efficient and sustainable industry. All this from the hand of more than 280 experts and through vertical forums for each segment of the industry: Meat Forum, Beverage Forum, Bakery, Sea Food, Dairy and Agro.

In addition, industry leaders will be able to exchange knowledge and establish synergies in a high-level networking environment, with activities such as the Foodtech Innovation Awards 2021 -which recognize companies that are committed to innovation in the sector-, the Foodtech Startup Forum - a competition between startups with the most disruptive foodtech solutions-, the Leadership Summit or the Tech Guided Tours.

For three days, Bilbao will become the world capital of foodtech innovation, bringing together the leaders of the sector and the most disruptive solutions, leading the debate to face the challenges of the food sector for the coming years. The event is organized by Nebext, the leading private event organization company in Spain, together with AZTI, the scientific and technological center of the Basque Country, and has the support of the Bilbao City Council and the Basque Government.
