Building a Sustainable Future Food Value Chain

The current food system faces numerous challenges, including resource depletion, soil degradation, climate change, food waste, population growth, nutritional inequality, and biodiversity loss. To address these issues, Bühler is committed to building a sustainable future food system through innovation and strategic initiatives.

Bühler aims to reduce energy consumption, water usage, and food waste in its customers' value chains by 50% by 2030. The company is developing alternative protein technologies, such as plant-based and insect-based proteins, to provide environmentally friendly protein sources. Bühler also designs energy-efficient and eco-friendly equipment to significantly reduce energy and resource consumption. By collaborating with global organizations and academic institutions, Bühler promotes sustainable agricultural practices, provides education and training, and advocates for local sourcing to reduce carbon emissions. Additionally, Bühler employs efficient processing and storage technologies to minimize food loss and waste during these stages.
