Sector challenges

Some of the challenges that the food manufacturing industry face include:

Legacy Systems Requiring Modernisation

Many agricultural operations still rely on outdated or legacy IT systems that were implemented years or even decades ago. These legacy systems may have been designed for specific tasks or processes that were relevant at the time but are now inadequate for meeting the current and future needs of modern agricultural practices.

Cyber security and Data Protection Concerns

As the agriculture industry becomes increasingly dependent on digital technologies and connected systems, the risk of cyber threats and data breaches heightens. Cyber attacks targeting agricultural operations can potentially disrupt operations and even impact critical infrastructure like irrigation systems or livestock management systems. Ensuring robust cyber security measures and protecting sensitive data from unauthorised access or theft can be a significant challenge for agricultural organisations.

Resilience Against Disruptions

Business continuity and data recoverability are vital for food manufacturers in the face of disasters or system failures. Cloud-based solutions for data storage, backups, and disaster recovery plans are necessary to protect critical operations and data, ensuring minimal disruption to production and distribution.
