Ronald, congratulations on this milestone! We are extremely grateful to have you on our team and look forward to many more years of cooperation and successes.

Automation and robotization
Food & Agri sector.

In terms of technology, the food & agri sector is not standing still. On the contrary. Automation and the use of data are increasingly being applied throughout the chain. Both in the field and in the processing and distribution of crops and products.
JBR's Food & Agri team has written an article on the use of robots and cobots in the production process. With the central question: can we maintain, and perhaps even improve, the quality of our food with the use of robots? We address the five main challenges involved in using robots in the industry.
