Smart Food Factory

By 2050, the world population is expected to be 9 billion people. The combination of richer diets and increased population means that food production will have to be doubled in the next 30 years. Today’s Food and Beverage manufacturing facilities are held to extremely strict standards that are being met and regulated through automation. There is also consistent pressure from competition to improve product nutrition, taste, and integrity – all while keeping pricing low and food safe. Achieving efficiency, keeping costs low and maintaining quality is the balance that leads to success. This online conference and exhibition will investigate what future food factories will look like and how current issues should be addressed to realise this vision.
