Facilitating the Seamless Transition Towards Industry 4.0

22 March 2022   |    PST TIMEZONE

It is predicted that food and beverage production will need to double over the next 30 years to cater for increased population.

 

The increase in consumer demand, heightened quality control measures, and the rise of emerging technology is driving the Food & Beverage industry to integrate Smart Technology into their plants to allow for cost-efficient, streamlined, and higher-quality production.

 

While Smart Manufacturing has many benefits for the Food and Beverage sector, current labour shortage, cultural resistance to technology, and business maturity all present a challenge to manufacturers within this sector.

 

This virtual summit will offer a variety of collaborative discussions and presentations that will provide you with the necessary tools to facilitate the seamless transition towards industry 4.0.
