In the coming years reliable food production will be a big challenge to feed the world. Therefore Ostra International is aware of the importants of sustainability in food production, handling and processing.
The challenge throughout the agro sector is to continue to achieve economic success while reducing carbon emissions, reduce waste, water and energy consumption. Important in this aspect is sustainable production practices keeping the 3 P’s in mind, signifying Profit, Planet and People.
In order to ensure enough food for the coming generations and increasing world population we have to increase the world food production and in the meantime reduce our ecological footprint.
It is expected that in the yr 2030 the world food needs will be increased with 30% !!
This means we need more production on less agricultural land.
In this respect Ostra International can assist you in:
• Reducing storage losses,
• Smart solutions for cultivation with less fertilizer,
• Less plant protection agents,
• Optimize irrigation systems,
• Reduce energy consumption of cultivation and storage technology.
• Optimizing the food chain
