Today, the world's agriculture faces many environmental, economic and social challenges. Answers to problems often induce development directions that are partly opposed to each other, such as in the case of digitization and ecologization. In our research, we identified the most important sustainability challenges affecting agriculture, the food industry and consumption through descriptive statistical analysis of Eurostat's agri-environment management indicators and HCSO data. Our results revealed that the Hungarian agricultural economy is struggling with a number of sustainability challenges that do not receive adequate attention from political decision-makers. On the basis of the current documents (Digital Agricultural Strategy, Digital Food Industry Strategy), we basically identified five problem areas. In the future, further CAP and national policy reforms are needed to make the EU's agricultural economy more sustainable. This would primarily require a more balanced appearance of digitization and an ecological approach and a fairer distribution of support resources at the national level
