As the world’s need grows, it’s not enough for manufacturers to simply ramp up production. These companies should consider quality as an important factor and recent regulations in the food and beverage sector point to the importance of safe and healthy food selections. As a result, many companies have introduced technology to help them increase production while distributing tech for good better options. About 43% of global consumers are looking for safer, healthier food to take home from the grocery store. Spanish startup COCUUS produces animal protein analogues of plant or cellular origin using 2D/3D laser printing, bioprinting and robotics. The startup offers LEVEL-UP inkjet 3D printers and LASERGLOW 2D/3D laser printers for food manufacturers.
This change can be beneficial for the entire industry, but adapting to it can be overwhelming. Here are some of the ways technology will rebuild and redefine the food industry and how it can impact the customer experience. The implementation of smart sensors is a welcome addition for food and beverage companies.
This ambitious initiative focuses both on strategic food production to become food self-sufficient and on long-term solutions for resource conservation and sustainability.

In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic had a compelling impact on accelerating the adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies throughout the food value chain and improving food quality. Food manufacturers are digitizing their production sites with robotics, e-commerce and digital food management tools. Restaurants also use robots for hospitality and cooking, as well as promoting e-commerce. The food industry is addressing the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 situation using all of the above tools, towards efficient, transparent and sustainable operations. The food and beverage industry integrates robotics throughout the value chain to promote efficiency, consistency and scale during food production.
