FOSS’ vision is ‘Feeding the food value chains with trust, quality and insights’

A core part of this vision is to help customers make faster, better-informed business decisions, e.g. "How can we identify and react faster to food safety issues? How is this year’s harvest different to last year’s? Where can we reduce waste and energy consumption?"
