For most of us, food is simply the end product, a piece of meat or bag of lettuce picked up at a grocery store to eat for dinner. The people behind that food – from the farmers and producers to delivery drivers and retailers – go largely unnoticed. That is, until something breaks along the supply chain.
Dr. Helen Hambly, Professor at the School of Environmental Design and Rural Development at the University of Guelph, believes the need for more efficient agricultural processes has never been greater – and why 5G may be the answer.
