The demands facing the food and beverage industry are intensifying. Technology, sustainability and uncertainty are disrupting longstanding practices. Centralised operations offering maximum efficiency for large-scale production are less suited to markets where consumers expect choice, speed and home delivery. At the same time, the imperatives of sustainability, action on climate change and environmental liability are requiring significant adjustments in manufacturing and supply chains. There is an urgent need for new, flexible, dynamic and resilient solutions. Meanwhile, day-to-day focus on hygiene, energy efficiency and working conditions remains as important as ever.

Digital technologies, Industry 4.0 and automation provide some of the answers, as can smaller scale, agile and flexible facilities which are located closer to customers. We have the deep knowledge, insight and expertise to provide consultancy advice and end-to-end engineering solutions. We are also helping innovative food tech start-ups make the transition from R&D to efficient production at scale. Sustainability, logistics, transparent supply chains, innovation, automation and future thinking are all part of our agenda. Make sure they are part of yours by partnering with our food and beverage team.
