Land and Grow: The China Agri-Tech Opportunity

30th June 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Providing smart solutions to upgrade China’s agri-food supply chain

Home to one of the world’s largest populations, China is seeking expertise from agri-tech companies to provide smart solutions to upgrade its agri-food supply chain.

Would you like to find out more about how your company could access one of the largest economies in the world? Could your agri-tech make a significant impact on improving sustainable food production in China?

There are opportunities for companies with solutions in software, hardware, robotics, biotech and IoT technologies.

Join Agri-EPI Centre in partnership with 8 Hours Ahead for a webinar as we explore agri-tech opportunities in China and the practicalities of entering the Chinese market.

8 Hours Ahead specialise in matching technology companies to specific market needs in China. They are a specialist technology landing, scaling, and investment platform for the Chinese market on a mission to help build pioneering Sino-global businesses.

By 2025, it’s anticipated that the agricultural technology sector will be worth more than £136 billion globally. Agri-EPI Centre intends to help drive that growth from the UK.
