To Stay Competitive, Automation is a Must New technological advances such as automation and artificial intelligence (AI) are advancing at a rapid pace and are transforming the productivity and capabilities of many businesses globally.

Food and beverages, along with manufacturing were some of the first industries to harness automation and continue to reap the benefits. So, what does automation offer?

For businesses, the benefits of automation are relatively clear. It offers the opportunity to significantly improve productivity and performance whilde reducing costs and the chachances of human error. At the same time, automation can greatly improve quality, flexibility, and speed while lowering downtime.

Therefore, it’s no surprise that the use of automation is predicted to gain further traction in 2018.

Food and Drink Industry and Digital Technologies The food and drink industry is a prime candidate for the further adoption of automation. It’s quite clear why, as the industry is one of the most competitive and challenging landscapes.

Tight profit margins, staying up-to-date with nutritional trends and changing customer preferences in regard to variety, flavour, innovation and environmental sustainability further increases the strain on this industry.

Things have changed rapidly in recent years for the food and drink industry. For example, the barriers to entry have lowered due to globalisation. It’s no longer sufficient enough for companies to compete by offering the largest and leveraging scale.

Now companies – even the largest multinationals – must innovate to remain relevant and stay ahead of the competition in a constantly changing, cost-competitive market.

Opportunities for Food and Drink Manufacturers Food and drink manufacturers must utilise the latest technologies and systems to support new product lines, extensions, markets, and regions. At the same time, they are required to leverage data to identify new growth prospects and react swiftly to emerging competitive threats. Technologies that were previously optional are now essential for many plants.

With consumer demands rapidly changing, it is imperative for manufacturers to be able to be flexible enough to change from one production run to another in response to shifting trends.

With all this in mind, it has never been a better time for food and drink producers to increase their investment in automation. Some of the benefits that automation can bring to food and drink production in the long term include reducing production costs, improving productivity and efficiency and also reducing waste.
