Digitalisation is the key to responsible food production. Powerful software tools that process huge amounts of data and generate actionable insights enables producers within the food supply chain to make informed decisions. Check out our conversation with German media Handelsblatt now:
Digitalised food supply chains for a sustainable future
“One of today’s greatest challenges is responsible food production,” says Jarkko Ilomäki, Chief Operating Officer & Chief Technology Officer at Mtech Digital Solutions Oy in Finlad, which has secured a reputation as the leading food supply chain digitiser in the Nordics. “Digitalisation is the key to achieving this end.”
He continues: “Farmers for example should think of their farm as a business, where state-of-the-art technology is needed to guarantee responsible operations. Where reliable information is accessible, farmers can make informed decisions and thus more efficiently use existing machinery, including sensors and milking stations.”
Mtech recognizes and responds to the ever-changing requirements food producing organisations face. Patrik Nordgren, Director – Customer Solutions Global, explains: “Mtech works with IT integrations. We provide powerful software tools that process huge amounts of data and generate actionable insights.” All this enables producers within the food-supply chain to make informed decisions.
Mtech’s role as a technology provider for the iDDEN Dairy Data Exchange Network is the best example of the company’s capabilities in data integration and sharing. Nordgren explains: “We implement and maintain a cloud-based data transfer service, creating dairy data on more than 200,000 cattle and 20 million cows around the world.”
In digitalization, Finland is a forerunner. “We can help both technologically and in a practical way,” says Ilomäki. “In Finland, we are considered innovators who know how to implement new solutions globally. With Germany, I think we have this engineering-oriented mindset in common.”
