How IOT Affects Food Processing


In the world of food processing, Industrial IOT is looking to change the face of how we process our favorite foods. In the dairy industry, Agropur, a North American leader in dairy processing, recently added an integrated control and information system from Rockwell. This has allowed them to be more efficient with their time and resources through the production process. Similarly, Maple Leaf Foods, a canadian based meat production company, implemented IOT solutions into their Hamilton, Ontario facility.

The plant saw a significant increase in efficiency and cost savings by being able to learn about production problems in real time and act accordingly. Sean Barry, MindSphere food and beverage developer said, “For those involved in the manufacturing world, IIoT has created an environment where every data source corresponds with an opportunity.” As our need for food production will only increase in the future, IOT solutions look to be the way forward.
