This issue: Disruptive Future of Food


10 years ago, the first agri-food project Presans worked on was about light edible oil – fat-free fat! Since then, we tackled with our clients many something-free food projects. Sugar-free, lactose-free, gluten-free, cruelty-free, animal-protein-free, plastics-free, and so on.

Even if it seems that we keep removing stuff from food, the agri-food landscape is getting more and more complex. More and more at the convergence of industries and scientific disciplines. 

In this issue we are diving into the agri-food complexity, and hopefully, you’ll end up with complexity-free insights 🙂.

Darko Jesic, COO @ Presans
