Food processing is one of the most crucial revenue generating sector for a majority of the developed and developing economies around the globe. The advent of Internet of Things (IoT) and robotics in the industrial sector, has helped overcome critical issues related to production and execution by eliminating the potential chance of human errors, while reducing the redundancy in the work being performed by manual labor. The change in consumer demands towards preferring fast, affordable, and easily accessible food options has led to a transformation in the food & beverages industry, with market leaders leveraging advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning to scale operations and help companies stay relevant in a dynamic market environment.
Artificial intelligence has the potential to fuel innovation in production and packaging to reach consume expectations in terms of quality of the product on the palate and its related impact on the cost. To attain the potential tradeoff between the quality and price, industry stakeholders are actively leveraging the potential of AI across the various applications, such as product design, quality control, maintenance, as well as consumer engagement among others.
Improving the Efficiency of the Conventional Industrial Infrastructure
Artificial intelligence has been actively gaining prominence since the last five years, with companies actively investing in exploring the potential of the technology in the industry. The emergence of the technology has been instrumental in revamping the overall infrastructure responsible for the manufacturing of consumer packaged goods (CPG). Small and emerging players in the market have been gaining immense market traction by developing streamlining software, which helped achieve considerable process improvements by utilizing insights obtained through data collected on a consistent basis. This integration of advanced technology has revolutionized the efficiency improvements in the food and beverage industry, with significant reductions in downtime, repair costs as well as additional labor requirements and cost.
Thus, vendors in the market have been encouraging the use of artificial intelligence to leverage such efficiency benefits to achieve considerable cost optimization.
Customer Engagement Set to Propel the Use of Artificial Intelligence in F&B Industry
Enterprises have been found to leverage the benefits of Artificial Intelligence, through the use of advanced analytical tools, such as speech and text analytics combined with image and voice recognition technologies for optimizing time and enhancing the overall customer experiencing by constantly engaging them in activity. Dietary applications are a major development, which by itself is set to propel the use of AI in the F&B industry exponentially as consumers are found to be increasingly reliant on health and nutritional benefits associated with the food & beverages intake.
The millennial population has been exposed to the use of AI across different end-user applications in the entertainment sector, however, growing proliferation of the technology is the food service sector has led to companies developing chat bots and customer engagement tools, which have immensely helped improve the quality of service being provided to the customers.
