Legislation, regulations, tight margins and increases in competition are driving food and beverage manufactures to invest in automation, control and traceability systems to increase production efficiency and profitability.

With the EU legislation introduced in January 2005 requiring food and beverage manufactures to trace products throughout the production cycle, the industry is seeing a rise in investment in traceability systems and tracking devices such as machine vision sensors and 1D and 2D code readers. Advances in SCADA, HMIs and programmable logic controllers are also encouraging the food and beverage industry to replace legacy systems with more reliable and efficient alternatives.

Industrial Technology Systems Ltd (ITS) offers a range of solutions to assist food and beverage manufacturers in their quest to reduce batch variability, downtime and waste whilst improving productivity and product traceability:

ITS’ food and beverage customers include Branston Potatoes, Heinz, Jacob’s Bakery, Kwoks Foods, Monkhill Confectionery, Quest International, United Biscuits, Scottish Courage, The Cheese Company, Tryton Foods and Warburtons.
