Such strategic plans includes the creation of the think tank One\Third, innovation in food value chain, retail and consumption, packaging, processing ingredients in the dairy sector, as well as primary production and supply chain infrastructure and being a decisive factor the collaboration between business, consumers, communities and public authorities.
