Using Quality Management to optimise food safety


The Netherlands is to form the center for global food innovation with the Global Coordinating Secretariat (GCS) in Wageningen, as announced by Dutch Prime Minister Rutte during a recent digital meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF). Due to the current economic and ecologic challenges the world is facing, combining the powers of ICT and AgriFood is more important than ever to produce sufficient food that meets all safety standard. As an ICT company with multiple customers in the AgriFood industry, how does Icologiq help solve this challenge?

Worldwide, almost 2 billion people have no access to sufficient, nutritious and safe food and 690 million people suffer from chronic hunger or a lack of proper nutrition. The expected growth of the world population and the consequences of the climate crisis only increase the urgency of the need to produce more and smarter food. 

“The Dutch economy is one of the most innovative in the world,” says minister Van ‘t Wout, minister of Economic Affairs and Climate in The Netherlands. “With the arrival of the Global Coordinating Secretariat, we can make even better use of our innovative power to contribute to global food security. With a strong combination of companies and knowledge institutions in AgriFood, horticulture, breeding, high-tech and ICT, we have all the factors needed to play a leading role and to shape the necessary change in the food system.”
