Schuttelaar & Partners helps clients from the agricultural sector make concrete steps towards more sustainable and future-focused forms of farming. We achieve this goal through strategic advice, initiation of innovative developments and facilitation of the cooperation within the value chain, including promoting constructive dialogues between European farmers and citizens.
Agriculture can be future-focused, only by constantly innovating and generating more sustainability. A sensitive compass for societal and economic development is essential in this process. The challenges are so immense that, to achieve impact, joining forces, both within and outside the agri-food chain, is crucial. In that sense, agrarian entrepreneurs can generate innovation and sustainability, while earning a fair price for their products. The digital age we live in offers unparalleled opportunities to make big steps in this process by creating new connections and market arrangements.
Bridging the 'Internet of Things' and the agri-food sector
S&P leads the communication activities of the IoF2020, a Horizon 2020 project aiming at demonstrating how the agri-food sector can benefit from the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) technologies. The project is expected to deliver full-scale demonstrations of IoT solutions into the agri-food sector and pave the way towards a more sustainable and efficient sector (e.g. food waste reduction).
Insects as a sustainable source of proteins
The International Platform of Insects for Food and Feed (IPIFF) aims to make the insect industry prosper by promoting insects as a source of animal proteins for both human consumption and animal feed. The organisation is composed of 28 members from 14 different countries.
Since late 2014 Schuttelaar & Partners has been managing the secretariat of IPIFF and further professionalized its communications and the public affairs activities. Schuttelaar & Partners has succeeded in expanding the membership base from five to almost thirty. Today, IPIFF is well known by European media and institutions as the leading voice for the insect breeders.
