The actors of the food and beverage industry have to serve a constantly growing population and quality demands in addition to geopolitical uncertainty, unfavorable economic conditions, disruptions in the supply chain, rising raw material and energy prices, and market competition are also extremely fierce. In such a situation, it is more important than ever to operate as efficiently as possible to assess under what conditions accurately, how much energy and raw materials are being used, and at what costs.
The use of cloud-based platforms, the development of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and the deployment of artificial intelligence (AI) – among other measures, actors in the food and beverage industry can speed up their digitization. During IDC’s survey last summer, more than three-quarters (77 percent) of the decision-makers of companies operating in these sectors reported that digital developments had brought considerable progress in achieving the leading indicators.
The application of digital solutions and, thus, more efficient operation is essential not only from a business point of view but also for sustainability. Your organization can gain a valuable ally by conducting due diligence and finding a solution provider that knows food and beverage inside-out.
