Agriculture is the world’s largest industry, with an estimated 1.2 billion people relying on it for employment and food security. With the global population expected to be 9.7 billion by 2050, farming is critical for food supplies and contributes up to 25% of GDP for some developing economies.
Farming is necessary, but the environmental impacts of food and agricultural production are substantial. Experts project farming generates over 20% of the world’s greenhouse gases and contributes to deforestation, pollution, and general environmental degradation.
When performing agricultural operations sustainably, they can preserve soil health, restore habitats, and protect sensitive areas such as forests and wetlands.
The demand for sustainable agricultural resource management is growing. At Eurofins, we can support farmers with crucial metrics and services that enable them to make informed and sustainable decisions. We support the European Union Farm to Fork strategy so farmers get the proper support to put our food production on a sustainable path. Our goal is to support farmers and facilitate the appropriate selection of raw materials used for food and consumer products.
