Understanding and controlling agri-food processes (AFC) is of major importance when trying to ensure sustainability with respect to growing complexity and consumer expectation. Such chains often model complex processes relying on numerous criteria, using various granularity of knowledge, most often inconsistent (due to the fact that complementary points of view can be expressed). Methodologies and tools from various sub-fields of Artificial Intelligence (AI) have showed their potential for advancing the state of the art. Multi agent systems (MAS) technology can optimise food supply chain operation by employing intelligent agent applications. MAS research areas in consensus and cooperation (argumentation, negotiation, normative systems, multi agent resource allocation and social affects) show how viewing classical AFC problems from this perspective can bring new perspectives and research avenues. Recent advances in Linked Open Data (LOD) and its potential for interoperability meant that more and more ontologies are developed by various actors of the food chain. Methods for integrating these ontologies in a principled manner are still to be developed within each food chain.
