In terms of energy consumption, the whole agro-food system consumes large amounts of fossil fuels for the production of vegetable and animal food. This paper draws attention to the agro-food industry in Italy and in the European context, exploring more in details the fruit and vegetables industrial sector. Main measures, policies and technologies determining energy consumption in the agro-food industry are focused. Furthermore, available energy efficiency improvement tools and feasible ways to efficiently manage most of energy consumptions are discussed.
