Automation and Robotics
Since ancient time, Man has always innovated and is always new ways to make his work easier. The idea is to increase the output while reducing the input of work simultanously where possible. The science of automation and robotics deals with the application and manufacturing of automated systems (robots, machines and computer systems) to reduce the need for human work. This quest for automation is widespread over all industries and we have been able to use technologies to continously harvest more output with less human work.
As one of the most important industries in the world, the food industry too has been obsessed with automation and machinery. It’s been a common dilemma since the dawn of the industrial age, machines taking jobs away from people. A lot of jobs have already been lost to the last 25 years to automation and this trend is not likely to stop. In fact in the World Economic Forum, it is projected that 7 million jobs will be lost and another 2 million jobs will be created by the year 2020 due to the disruption and result of technological changes in the 15 major developed and emerging economics around the world.
Automation in Global Food industry
The food industry isn’t spared by such disruption, the industry is changing rapidly as ever more new food technologies in food processing emerge that enables more automation. This trend in industrial automation impacts all food industry companies, equipments (from food equipments that requires intense labour to food equipments that requires little or no labour), food industry manufacturing processes and affects basically all players in the food industry supply chain.
Disrupting Global Food manufacturing and processing industry
No companies in the food industry (or in fact any industry) is spared from this change. Technological changes in food manufacturing and processing technologies mean only one thing. Those who embrace this change will prevail and thrive in the future with their lower cost structure (through automation) and higher output and those food industry companies that stick to the “old” way of utilising out-dated and inefficient food industry equipment risk being made irrevelant by losing their competitiveness. This race to the top of food automation has already started and the process of weeding out inefficient market players is already under way.
