Industrial Infrastructure Perspectives

How IT and facility professionals support the priorities of food and beverage Food and Beverage processing facilities are faced with a growing number of opportunities and challenges to increase operational efficiencies while keeping safety and the environment top of mind. Food and beverage facility managers are prioritizing the challenges of AI and IIoT, sustainability, safety and compliance, operational efficiency, and supply chain management.


Adopting the latest controls, lighting, electrical, and network solutions can help alleviate the above-changing demands and enable the goals of food and beverage facilities, IT, and engineering stakeholders.

Industry 4.0, AI and IIoT
Innovations in AI and IIoT provide real-time data and predictive maintenance allowing facility operators to make more precise, data-driven operational decisions. Embracing these technologies enables high production efficiency, minimal downtime, and resource optimization while reducing health and safety risks in food and beverage processing facilities.


With up to 40 per cent of the world’s food lost or wasted every year, implementing sustainable practices in the food and beverage industry is a top priority. This ambition is also driven by consumer preferences for foods that are produced sustainably. Food and beverage facilities are also challenged with aligning their operations with evolving sustainability targets and managing energy consumption to reduce their manufacturing carbon footprint.

Safety and Compliance
Despite significant advancements in manufacturing technology, recent reports show that the number of food recalls in the U.S. has increased, costing the food industry more than $10 million. This has led to more regulations and preventative measures against foodborne outbreaks, particularly with the Food Safety and Modernization Act (FSMA). However, worker safety as well as OSHA fines is just as important for facility managers to address. Ensuring safe lighting, code code-compliant electrical equipment are installed and maintained in these dynamic environments is paramount.

Operational Efficiency
Efficiency is imperative in today’s food and beverage facilities to remain profitable and to meet evolving consumer, environmental, and competitive demands. Updating old technologies, integrating AI and IIOT, and streamlining production processes can improve operational output while minimizing waste and downtime.


Supply Chain Management
From natural disasters to the COVID-19 pandemic, supply chain disruptions are heightened due to varying global events. Leveraging solutions that promote electrical safety and offer real-time data with remote access abilities can help operators better predict potential risks and minimize interruptions for seamless supply chain processes.
