Event description
Seminar to learn about using current digital technologies in food manufacturing and the UK policy challenges to adopting these tools.

About this Event

A seminar to learn from companies and technology providers on best practices to successfully implement current digital technologies in food manufacturing and to discuss policy and regulatory challenges to the uptake of such technologies within the UK Food Sector.

DESCRIPTION: The rapid growth of digital technologies has made a significant impact on modern manufacturing, including the food sector. The Centre for SMART in collaboration with Internet of Food Things (IoFT) Network Plus brings together multi-disciplinary R&D teams to share best practices for incorporating and capitalising on such technologies and to establish a policy platform for progressing towards a more sustainable, resilient and productive UK food supply chain.

PURPOSE: Attendees will be able to engage with senior industrialists, policy makers, and technology providers to discuss successes and barriers in taking advantage of new opportunities brought forward by the advent of the fourth industrial revolution (industry 4.0) within the food manufacturing industry; and to learn about new tools that are helping companies become more financially competitive. Attendees will also participate in an open discussion to enable the successful implementation of modern advanced digitalised tools in food manufacturing.

OUTCOME: To generate a summary document that highlights the identified benefits and opportunities as well as barriers to the use of modern digital technologies, in support of smart resource-efficient production, in building resilient business models across the food supply chain, and in incorporating consumer requirements and/or demands in future food product developments.

Hosted by,

The Centre for SMART was established at Loughborough University in 2004 to go beyond current incremental process improvements and develop new strategies, methodologies and supportive technologies that are capable of dealing with challenges in sustainable production and consumption.

IoFT Network Plus brings together computer scientists, chemists, and economist to investigate how artificial intelligence, data analytics and emerging technologies can enhance the digitalisation of the UK food supply chain.
