In recent years, governments across the Middle East have developed a robust food security strategy for their nation to ensure access to safe, nutritious and sufficient food, all year round.

Improving the local produce has been one of the top priorities for these authorities and this has been complemented by the innovations in the agritech space that have helped farms to improve their products in the arid environment.

The first DigiConnect conference of the MENA Food Security Forum series focused on the latest trends and innovations in agriculture and the opportunities in improving the quality and quantity of domestic produce.

David Farquhar, CEO of IGS, kicked off with some very insightful discussions about how we can begin to ensure global food security. Watch the full presentation as David explores how vertical farming can work in partnership with traditional agriculture to contribute to long term sustainability in food supply chains.
