WINETECH Innovation in South Africa

Winetech believes that ideas must be turned into value and that the scientific based research and development we support forms the foundation for wine industry innovation. The process of innovation itself requires operational readiness, strategic foresight and a sound ecosystem for success.

Building an extensive and optimally functioning innovation ecosystem that delivers ground-breaking outcomes for the wine industry is a very high priority within Winetech. The Fourth Industrial Revolution has shown how new technologies will disrupt various sectors. The agricultural sector is indeed one of the sectors that showed substantial investment in new technologies.

The wine industry can’t afford to stay behind and therefore over the last few years open innovation challenges attracted new role-players to showcase how their novel ideas or technology can address complex industry problems. Winetech and a number of start-up companies are currently experimenting with specific industry role-players to test these technologies to demonstrate how they can add value to the industry.
