What drives the future of the food and beverage industry?

Investment in digital drives new efficiency gains but there are still areas for improvement

As our industry undergoes dramatic change, it’s vital that the decisions we make today provide options for long-term growth. Unfortunately, we find many food and beverage manufacturers locked-into a vicious cycle of maintaining a mishmash of technologies. Not making a change to transform operations creates real risk to long-term growth. It is important to have a partner that can help you integrate the way you perform operations today with how you are transforming for tomorrow.  On behalf of Siemens, Longitude Research conducted interviews with US manufacturers in the Food and Beverage industry to discover their reasons for digitizing and barriers to progress in digitalization. The research assessed each manufacturer’s digital capabilities across six core dimensions: data intensity, connectivity, adaptability, integration, security, and people.
