The food industry comes with risks that could similarly harm consumers and food businesses. However, implementing AI in the food industry guarantees a more Sustainable tomorrow because of its unlimited potential.
FREMONT, CA: 26 percent of the global greenhouse gas production from the food industry alone contributes to climate change. Nearly 33 Percent of the global production of food goes to waste. This equates to at least 1.3 billion tons of food per year. The United Nations estimates that this much food could feed 3 billion people.
It's a well-known fact that the resources are limited, and achieving sustainability in the food chain has been a challenging task for a long time for both retailers and manufacturers. However, the technological revolution in the food sector and innovations involving artificial intelligence have shed light on these issues.
Nowadays, Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning programs have been used to improve packaging, delivery, customer service, management, and monitoring in the food industry. These innovations have contributed significantly to reducing food wastage and improving sustainability.
Machine learning technology is used in inspecting food packaging integrity and related industries. This innovation is appreciated for its ability to take in new information in bulk and adapt based on the new data instantly. It enables a seamless transition when new products are launched. Information about the norms for standard quality of the packaging is uploaded and used as a baseline for detecting defects. AI technology has also been using embedded barcodes on processed meats to improve food packaging labeling.
Food business owners can monitor their operations remotely with Smart technology that has been applied to food safety management systems. Machine learning software uses stored information to predict operations and documents essential for a food business. AI has come a long way in maintaining food safety. Food businesses would dedicate less time to micromanaging their food safety operations and have full confidence in their employees and the smart system.
The food supply chain always comes with hazards that could hurt food businesses and consumers alike. Using the technological advancements related to AI, the precision movement and predicted patterns of AI reduces human behavior and increase yield in production. The potential of AI and its application in the food industry assures a sustainable future. Food wastage and inefficient operations will reduce as more and more technological advancements are introduced to the industry.
