Agri food tech

The Lombard agrifood system is the most important in Italy in terms of production levels (equal to 11% of the entire Italian production) and among the most relevant in the European context. Its structural characteristics and average profitability of production are definitely above the European average. There is an active synergy between the different players in the production chain: a collaborative context that encourages the exchange of knowledge and technology as an integral part of the production chain. Milan also hosted EXPO 2015: “Feeding the planet, energy for life”, a unique opportunity for Italian companies to demonstrate their leadership, innovation and solutions in a global context.
