Future Internet for Safe and Healthy Food from Farm to Fork

Sjaak Wolfert


At the present time, we are facing an emerging problem which will become even more urgent and critical in the coming decades: the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) estimates an increase of the world population from the current 6 billion people to 9-11 billion people by 2050 leading to a doubling of world-wide food demand. It is generally believed that that smart, data-rich ICT-services and applications, in combination with advanced hardware, can provide the much needed breakthroughs to producing enough good quality food in a safe and environmental-sound way. Therefore, the EU’s Future Internet Public-Private Partnership (FI-PPP) program (www.fi-ppp.eu) aims to make service infrastructures and business processes more intelligent, more efficient and more sustainable through tighter integration with Future Internet (FI) technologies.
