How IoT is Transforming the Food Processing Industry

Food and Beverages | Tuesday, September 14, 2021

The Industry 4.0 revolution is driving the food business to create more innovative ways to connect the food supply chain with real-time product data.

FREMONT, CA: The Internet of Things (IoT) is slowly and gradually gaining traction in the food processing sector. IoT in food processing has begun to offer food suppliers, processors, and retailers with better prospects for financial and operational enhancement in the food and beverage industries, due to its wide range of applications.

The implementation of IoT had a favorable influence on each functional area of the food business. IoT in food processing, for example, enables food businesses to attain improved levels of traceability, food safety, and accountability across the supply chain. In addition, the Internet of Things network reduces risk, expenses, and waste at every level of the process. This change, labeled as "Industry 4.0," transforms the food manufacturing landscape into a smarter, more interconnected supply chain.

Let's take a closer look at the influence that digitalization and Internet of Things had on the food manufacturing business and their advantages.

Increased Operational Efficiency: 

Machine learning algorithms supported IoT platforms to help guarantee profitable and long-term growth throughout the supply chain. This type of technology, and its capability to digitally evaluate the data it collects, can provide essential insights into preventative maintenance, equipment performance, and real-time inventory management. IoT devices, for example, can collect and store operational data, uncover bottlenecks in the manufacturing line, and assist in the identification of actionable solutions. These devices' remote connectivity considerably enhances field support and visibility in packaging operations. By monitoring equipment remotely, one can detect problems before they arise, saving time and money.

Production and Storage

Sensors can help with quality control, worker activities, and real-time food analysis and detect particles and color across the flour production process and moisture and protein levels. This can give real-time optimization of the manufacturing process, enabling the chance to correct the errors immediately. 

Waste Reduction

Every year, a tremendous amount of human food is wasted around the world. This leads to financial losses and environmental damage due to rising GHC emissions in the atmosphere. IoT allows for easy monitoring of all food products and transmission of real-time information to the handler, reducing food waste.
