Food-producing organizations across the world are ready to get altered. The food industry leverages technology to reshape the future of the food industry and brings profit to the organizations in innumerable ways.
FREMONT, CA: Technology has started to revolutionize almost all the markets, including the food production industry. The future of the food production industry with innovation and engineering could look very different from what it does currently, like the 3D printing in food. The adoption of 3D printing, lab-grown meat, blockchain, vertical farming, and cellular culturing can see agricultural and animal husbandry extinct. The evolving technology in the food processing industry will become more advanced in the future. Given below are a few examples every CIO must know about technology and how it shapes the food processing industry.
Blockchain Cloud Transforms Agri-Food Supply Chain
Blockchain technology can be widely used for tracing the agri-food supply chain. Blockchain has the ability for making every transaction in an agricultural supply chain transparent, verifiable, and traceable. In these recent years, there noted a series of issues with the traceability that could have been easily resolved if the blockchain ledger system had been used. One of the instances to note is how the blockchain system easily and quickly identified the source of contamination during the 2017 multi-state Salmonella outbreak that infected over 200 people in the U.S. Food tech giants like WalMart, Nestle, and Unilever, to name a few have already started to incorporate these techniques into their food supply chains.

Highly personalized Nutrition for Future
Personalized Nutrition is the concept of making the diet to specific means in which the genetic makeup predisposes to react to different foods and other eatables. This concept is not new, but some firms have already started to deliver it to their potential clients. Organizations like DNAFit, Nutigenomix, and Habit all offer services that promise to deliver the technique. Researchers and analysts have been investigating a person's unique genetic makeup and how they react to the food suppliants differently from other people. In some cases, some of them can take in certain essential nutrients more efficiently than other people. Once this becomes more sophisticated, the discipline is widely accepted that the food and nutrition supply will move away from a traditional approach to a truly unique and personally made eating plan.
Robo Chefs and Hospitality Services
Organizations like Moley is busy developing one of the world's first automated kitchens. Moley robochef is a robot having a pair of fully automated and articulated robotic arms that are manufactured for all intent and purpose, and replicates the movement of human arms and hands. The company trusts that their robochef has the same level of abilities as that of any human alternative, especially when it comes to the two important factors—speed and sensitivity. The organization plans to deliver a self-contained kitchen that will be operated by a touch screen or by the assistance of a smart device app.
3D Food Printing Changes the Look of Food
One of the developments in food technology is the work of institutes like the TNO, which is developing 3D printed food. With a huge gain of interest in 3D printing over the last years, the 3D food printing innovation is inevitable. This solution enables various possibilities for the shape, texture, composition, and finally, the taste of food products in the future.
Automated Grading Systems Like Aris AQS-System Cloud to Replace Employees
Firms like Aris have begun to offer innovative food production using AQS-system. This system is used to grade and sort chicken efficiently and accurately. AQS lets the organization' s client to sort chickens by their shapes, size, color, and other features. This new innovative step helps to manage and sort over 12,000 chickens in one hour, improving food production efficiency. Aris's AQS-system is the first to be able to achieve this. The technique uses a camera system and software program to identify a suite variation on the examined specimen. This system identifies and registers many profile deviations like the broken wings or missing parts, poor coloration, and helps to learn and improve itself over time.
