More innovation in Agri & Food by collaborating in a new ecosystem
By investing in collaboration to build a strong ecosystem, the agri & food companies can create new opportunities for innovation. The cooperation makes developing, maintaining and sharing knowledge easier and increases the optimal functioning of the value chain. Companies in an ecosystem together can devise better solutions that are differentiating and potentially cheaper.
For example, in the high-tech industry cooperation in the ecosystem delivered good results. By considering a wider range of suppliers in other industries and forming new collaborations, the agro & food companies can build their own new ecosystem. In this way they might be able to apply a technology that is used in another industry to a solution for the agricultural and food industry.
