The growing appreciation of the benefits of natural health products is driving the demand for nutraceutical, functional, and bioactive ingredients in food supplements and functional diets.

The global dairy consumption is expected grow as consumers are increasingly preferring ready-to-drink or ready-to-eat dairy products for protein enrichment and overall health and wellness. 

Effective, secure, and reliable supply chain management is crucial for a food company’s profitability and brand reputation in today’s competitive marketplace. 

Supply chain quality management is critical for the food industry to maintain product safety, quality, brand image, and time to market.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly being used in all areas of the enterprise around the world for its seemingly endless possibilities. As in many industries, artificial intelligence (AI) is making waves in the food industry too.  

In recent years, the importance of cloud computing has increased among various industries including the food industry. The shared IT infrastructure and services offered by cloud computing are more flexible, cost-effective and resource-efficient.   

Today, organisations are plagued by advanced, persistent cyberattacks that can devastate a company’s operations and reputation, including the food industry. Companies manage a wide range of assets, including infrastructure, applications, mobile devices, managed and unmanaged endpoints, and cloud services, all of which are vulnerable to cyberattacks.  

Internet of Things (IoT) is described as a network of connected sensors and actuators to control and monitor the environment, the things that move within it, and the people that act within it.   

Robots have become increasingly affordable, smarter, more adaptable, and simple to programme. This makes it easier for robots to infiltrate new industries and generate new use cases on a large scale, such as the food industry.   

While bioprocessing is one of the oldest methods to produce fermented foods such as yoghurt, bread, cheese and soybean products, changing consumer preferences for healthy, nutritious and smart food products is driving the demand for food processing aids and ingredients that are biologically derived. This makes bioprocess facility design an increasingly important factor for success 

Food processors and manufacturers transform raw materials into prepared products by performing a range of processes, including dry blending and emulsification. 

Food solutions and support services render the much-needed assistance required by food processors and manufacturers to ensure that their processing facilities are contamination-free and meet regulatory requirements, as well as run efficiently and productively. 

Food processors and manufacturers must keep up with the latest food processing industry trends as food preferences, technologies and processes continue to evolve. Training in food processing can help in implementing the latest strategies for the development of innovative and sustainable food products, minimising food waste, and improving food handling and preparation. 

Thermal processing of food using methods such as pasteurisation and sterilisation helps in extending the shelf-life of food and minimises the chances for microbiological contamination. 

Sanitary food pumps, valves and compressors are used in different steps during manufacturing in the food and beverage industry, including fermentation, mixing, pumping fluids, packaging, spraying, sterilisation, preservation, air filtration, and transportation. 

The food processing industry depends heavily on separation, filtration and purification equipment as they help to preserve the quality of food and extend shelf life. 

Requirements for materials handling and conveying for the food industry vary with the foods and the processing methods. With safety and hygiene being the top priorities, food and beverage companies need specialised handling, storage and conveying equipment, along with solutions for different processing and logistics applications. 

Food ingredients and additives are used to meet consumer demands for taste, colour, texture, freshness, aesthetics, and nutrient value. Industrial food ingredient suppliers look for competitive ingredients and additives to launch attractive, flavourful, healthy, convenient, and affordable products to increase their market share. 

Quality and safety are of paramount importance in the food industry. Food processing companies and food producers need to adhere to the high quality and safety standards set by the government and international organisations. 

The food processing industry uses a range of equipment and machinery to cook, prepare and package food products. Food processing line solutions and equipment are used to enhance the taste and shelf life of food products while, filling and packaging equipment is used to safely package prepared food.
