Power supply is not their main priority, however it is essential for their business. Because power matters, TIP offers a manifold of benefits that support the food and beverage industry specifically.

Adapt to required capacities

The food and beverage industry is a highly competitive business characterized by a short time-to-market, short-lived trends,  and a high degree of customization.

Reducing time-to-market

Time is an important factor in the food and beverage industry. To be able to stay ahead of the competitors, changes in the production process as well as in the portfolio range need to be implemented quickly while ensuring a constantly high product quality.

Reduce environmental impact

The need for environmental protection, the reduction of CO2 emissions as well as water and waste output reduction are some of the sustainability goals that food and beverage manufacturers have to meet to be a green pioneer or to fulfill the governmental regulations.

Achieving a reliable power supply

In emerging countries there often is high uncertainty about grid reliability. Additionally the power quality is fluctuating, thus making production processes in the food and beverage industry difficult.

Increasing competitiveness through digitalization

Individual customer demands are becoming an increasing priority in the food and beverage industry. To meet these requirements, collecting data from operations is gaining more and more importance. Smart solutions for IT/OT convergence are key technology enablers for enhancing business operations as they offer transparency about the costs, the processes and the plant availability.
