Agritech for Food Security

December 20, 2022

How can Canada develop and deploy next generation technologies to build up domestic food supply?

North American food supply is facing compounding pressures. In response, a collection of new and innovative technologies are emerging across the industry that are addressing those pressures. British Columbia and Canada can be a leader in their development and deployment.

These technologies are bolstering domestic food supply in Canada and the US by reducing dependencies on global trade, amplifying production at home, and increasing export capacity into global markets.

They include environment-controlled facilities that produce fruits and vegetables anywhere, cellular agriculture that produces alternative proteins, and AI, robotics, and IoT that increase efficiency and accuracy on the farm, boosting productivity and limiting human error.

CityAge, the BC Ministry of Agriculture and Food, and EMILI are coming together on December 20 to profile some of these technologies, discuss how the province can foster more tech development, and explore strategies for scaling these solutions to keep our food supply secure.
