The food and farming industry is greatly affected by the ever fluctuating climate. The varying global climatic swing and rising population is conditioning the upcoming trends of the food industry presently and will continue to do so in the future.

Apart from providing adequate produce for the ever rising population, soil degradation has become a new challenge to overcome. According to reports released by U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the world is left with only 70% of farming conducive soil. The continual soil depletion has in return necessitated innovative farming techniques. People are also becoming increasingly conscious of their dietary habits, thus vigilance and transparency in food supply will grow. Moreover, environment conservation has taken priority among people. This has led to the rise of veganism and to careful selection of produce that will have no adverse effects on environment as well as on humans. The latest rage is of consumption of simpler, local and sustainable food produce.  As an aftermath, farming production will shape up to the consumer needs. Risks and slow economic growth has driven away many younger generations from the profession. Attracting young crowd by introducing special vocational benefits to boost participation will be another challenge to face.
