F&B suppliers placing technology at the core in 2022


Consecutive waves of pandemic and immense stress due to the disruption within the supply is what the supplier industry would wish to put behind in 2022 with new focus on technology adoption to the core.


’Bringing new technology into routine use’


“COVID-19 has changed the food safety landscape for everyone. Our strategies and plans for 2022 would be largely influenced to support our customers to efficiently navigate through these changes. With numerous hazards already present, it is essential for food companies, manufacturers, and suppliers to keep up to date with newer technologies and workflows to enhance food safety and reduce food contamination risks. Keeping this in mind, we are committed to providing confidence and brand protection with our new and sensitive vegan and halal food testing assays. We have added the Vegan and Halal testing assays to our successful Thermo Scientific RapidFinder Meat and Fish ID Kit range, allowing food testing laboratories to provide confidence in regulatory compliance and customer satisfaction. We will also focus on our PCR pathogen detection that helps customers quickly and accurately detect foodborne pathogens and other essential food safety and quality targets. In addition, we will continue to invest in immersive technology solutions as well as bring new technology into routine use such as NGS as a tool to ensure consumer confidence and safety, and of course fair trade. To sum it up, for 2022, our focus will be safeguarding food authenticity and enabling our customers deliver safe food for all.”

‘Adopting digitisation towards Industry 4.0’


Our solution-oriented approach towards the humidity and moisture control problems faced by the customer has helped us stay ahead of the curve. It has helped us attain leadership positions in chosen fields. The Group has developed smart and efficient quality air solutions for sectors like electric vehicles (EVS), energy storage, pharmaceutical, food processing, data centres, plastics and many more. All these sectors have seen a rapid shift, and Bry-air is contributing innovative solutions to these industries. We are effectively focusing on new-age technologies and adopting digitisation towards Industry 4.0, which will drive the industry. We are optimistic about next year business. Last not least, the pandemic has taught the industry and organizations to be more self-reliant. Having multiple options with reduced dependency on a single source, for instance, the aim of localisation is an outcome of the post-COVID-19 aftermath. It is there to stay and benefit the Indian economy.

‘Digitalisation will be a major focus area’


“After the forgettable 2021, immediate focus area is to ensure that the business fundamentals remain robust, team is kept motivated, and continued support to our customers through uninterrupted supply chain to keep the printing houses moving in full throttle. Further, we will continue to work on our commitment to Product Safety Regulations through our product range that are on continuous evolution to meet the evolving food and packaging safety trends. Digitalization will be a major focus area for us during the year ahead, both for improved operational efficiency and also to provide improved services and support to our customers. We will also continue to work on driving the transformation of the industry away from a linear economy towards a circular economy model.”
