Trends to watch out for in the food & beverage industry

Higher demands for traceability and food safety

Responsible and ethical sourcing is an important part of becoming more sustainable, as is optimizing efficiency in the use of ingredients to avoid spoilage and other avoidable losses.

Big Data and IoT will be accelerated

Big Data applied to a large data set can lead to actionable insights. IoT devices scales and thermometers help collect data, automate the process and import readings in real time for an up-to-date picture of performance.

Cloud software solutions drive more growth

The greater security and reliability of cloud deployments contribute to healthy increases, as maintaining optimal uptime is critical to getting the most out of your materials, employees and equipment.

Supply chains become more resilient

We will never be able to predict in advance an event like the blockade of the Suez Canal or the Port of Los Angeles. Thanks to technologies, such problems can be detected more quickly and at the earliest possible stage.
