What significant problems does the food industry face today? Which solutions are already in development?

In this episode, I am talking with Mauricio Agudelo and Lina María Toro about Sustainable Food Innovation in South America.

BIALTEC assists animal protein producers to improve productivity and profitability through precision nutrition, understanding their particular dietary needs, analyzing them through a bioinformatics platform that uses artificial intelligence, and supplying the next generation antibiotic-free additives that will facilitate performance to obtain the desired results.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • The Problems in the Food Industry
