Prepared Foods

Automation and Control Solutions for Prepared Foods Manufacturers

Industry consolidation. Global competition. Increasing government regulations and changing customer preferences. These market forces drive the continual evolution of the food industry and dramatically impact your production and business strategy.

Increase Yield and Optimize Assets

Get Insight into Material Usage and Reduce Raw Material Costs

The most advanced automation equipment helps you to adopt better, more efficient ways to manufacture products. In this connected, information-rich environment, standards are consistent, quality is assured, and accountability defined.

Information-enabled automation systems can provide insight into materials usage and even track final yields back to specific vendors. This is especially important for the food products that have high raw-material costs, like prepared foods. Here, even a small improvement in yield can translate to a significant financial impact for your products.

For example, maximizing material usage and reducing scrap annually by as little as 1 percent can save hundreds of thousands of dollars in wasted material.

Our industrial automation, control, and software solutions span the entire production process, delivering cost-effective, results-based solutions to help you:

  • Improve production efficiencies and yield
  • Respond to changing consumer preferences
  • Reduce production costs
  • Improve product quality
