Digital technologies for improving productivity in food manufacturing

Brewer, Stephen; Pearson, Simon

On 2 April 2019, the Centre for Sustainable Manufacturing and Recycling Technologies (SMART) and the Internet of Food Things (IoFT) Network Plus hosted a conference, ‘Digital technologies for improving the productivity in food manufacturing’.

The event brought together more than 50 industrial leaders, professional bodies and academics in a workshop-style meeting to identify next steps for the uptake of digital technologies across the food manufacturing supply chain. The opportunities were discussed under three lenses.

This report aims to provide a balanced analysis of the evidence presented at that meeting and actionable insights to inform policy and practice.
