AI in Food Processing and Safety: 4 Significant Applications

Food and Beverages | Friday, July 31, 2020

AI has the potential to create a healthier and more affordable food industry for workers and consumers alike.

FREMONT, CA: The food industry is benefitting greatly from the latest advancements in Artificial Intelligence(AI), which is doing everything from helping to sort foods, maintaining top-notch health and safety compliances, developing new products, and bolstering the supply chain. Food safety testing often involves sorting a large quantity of feedstock and careful inspection. Here is how AI can be used in food safety testing and processing.

Top 10 Food Safety Tech Companies in APAC– 2020• Improved Sorting

Among manufacturing facilities, one roadblock that is relatively unique to food safety testing is that the feedstock is not uniform. A food plant might need to sort millions of food items based on size, shape, or color. Now a significant amount of that sorting has been automated with the help of AI, which reduced labor costs, increases in speed, and improved yields.

• Improved Food Safety Compliance

AI-enabled cameras in the kitchen or food facility watch to make sure that individuals are wearing masks or hair protection when required by safety regulations. Violations can be caught and corrected in near real-time. Also, AI object recognition can fight IP privacy to automatic safety testing.

• Improved Cleaning

The use of artificially intelligent sensor systems would reduce the amount of time it takes to clean equipment, which saves money on water, energy, and time. According to reports, 30 percent of energy and water use at food manufacturing facilities. Artificially intelligent sensor systems could reduce cleaning times up to 50 percent, allowing less downtime and more productivity.

• Cleaning Processing Equipment

Another important element of maintaining health standards is with advanced processes that help to clean equipment. Researchers are developing a system that uses AI to reduce cleaning time and resources, potentially saving high costs.

AI’s role in the food industry is becoming increasingly important due to its ability to help save food, improve hygiene, and clean processing equipment more quickly.
