This new technology class is symbolically named Cloud Computing. The agrifood sector is placed on top positions when the potential of applying the technology package defining cloud computing is concerned, in the operational, management and marketing area. All kinds of economic operators along the agrifood chain (farmers, wholesalers, processors, retailers) might thus become consumers of IT services in real time and at low costs.
