Studies show that staff shortages will be one of the main challenges facing the food service sector in 2023. This was also confirmed in the responses to one of the regular surveys carried out by Club Top F&B, whose members include the corporate directors for food and beverages at some of the leading hotel chains in Spain. Managing human resources and a lack of staff were the chief concerns highlighted in the survey, followed by the rising costs of raw materials and transforming the sector into one that is attractive for customers.

Firstly, foodtech refers to the use of technology and biotechnology to develop innovations that have a significant impact on the way food is produced, processed, cooked or distributed. Consequently, foodtech affects every link in the value chain of the food industry: from livestock farming and the primary sector through to supermarkets and, of course, food service.

However, it must now also adapt to specific external circumstances.
