Covid-19 accelerates digitization process in the field and virtual ecosystems gain space
Brazil, what stage is it in regarding the development of so-called foodtechs?
Soares - It is still a maturing process. On the Radar AgTech Brasil we also map the foodtechs. There is an advance, but we have a long way to go. So much so, that this is a topic that will be heavily worked on by the Ministry of Agriculture's Innovation area. This movement, even, as I mentioned here, has an extremely interesting initiative, which is the FoodTech Hub Brazil, whose objective is to promote the development of the foodtech chain in Brazil.
