In a recent Food Engineering magazine survey, respondents chose automation as a top priority for the Food and Beverage industry. Automation is the number two concern according to the survey, but it holds the key to solving almost all of the major concerns listed. For example, the survey found that the number one concern for Food and Beverage processors is efficiency and the number five concern is worker availability. Automation has proven to be a solution for both issues as one respondent commented, “Due to increasing cost of labor and increasing difficulty to find enough people to hire, automation is becoming more important. Much of the automation is also resulting in higher efficiencies as well.”
