Alberta Innovates CEO Laura Killcrease says feeding a hungry planet is a problem for the world and Alberta is doing its half.

“The applied sciences and improvements developed proper right here in Alberta via the Sensible Agriculture and Meals Digitalization and Automation Problem Program will meet that problem,” says Kilkridge. “We congratulate all of the profitable candidates on this yr’s competitors and we will not wait to see what occurs subsequent.”

In 2021, agri-food industries in Alberta contributed $8.1 billion to GDP and employed 58,300 Alberta.
