The food industry is one in transition, where traditionally healthy margins are being squeezed by the rising costs of raw materials. The industry is attempting to combat this by reducing the cost of packaging and processing through innovative technology. This push has lead to a significant rise in processing capabilities over the last 10 years.
However, the faster line speeds, changing packaging materials and more discerning customers are increasing the pressure to get it right first time. Reducing downtime or defect rates by just 1% can significantly improve your bottom line and could be the difference in securing that key customer.
