Consumers expect that packaged food they buy will taste good and be safe to eat or drink. Retailers need to make sure that the packages on their shelves are attractive and have not been damaged on their way through the supply chain.
Regulators are demanding, and increasingly legislating, to make sure manufacturers meet ever-higher food safety standards. And shareholders want to make sure their company’s reputation, growth and profitability are not put at risk by excessive waste or costly quality issues.
So how can the food and beverage (F&B) manufacturing industry adapt? How can it become smarter and more proactive through digital solutions to prevent food safety issues before they occur? Working together with partners, using smart technology will secure its transformation to meet the food safety challenges of the rapidly changing world of the future.
One of the key solutions is for the industry to start looking at opportunities like preventive food safety and quality checks. Industry 4.0 and digital solutions allow a food and beverage producer to take a fresh and more sophisticated approach to the way it runs its operations.
The good news is that the integration of the processes offered by the technologies behind Industry 4.0 can help food manufacturers meet many of the demands being placed on them, be they about enhancing food safety, better managing their supply chains or ensuring the greatest profitability in a complex and competitive world.
