Industry Trends


We are seeing the beginning of a transformation of the agricultural system away from the exploitation of the planet towards the revitalization of nature. The focus on holistic, circular systems is of central importance here. In the course of growing efforts to protect the climate, regenerative agriculture based on organic farming is experiencing an upswing.


Personal and Planetary Health

Individual health is becoming an important topic. However, it is not viewed in isolation, but with a view to the health of the planet. This movement can be observed above all in the growing young generation, which is placing greater emphasis on healthy, climate-friendly food. The Planetary Health Diet and the increasingly widespread vegan diet play an important role here. At the same time, older generations are redefining the topic of ageing by focusing on extending healthy years through a conscious and balanced diet.
