'Working together to address labor shortages'
More sensors, artificial intelligence, digital twins, robots and other smart technologies in the food processing industry. Digital technologies that offer countless opportunities to produce in a more sustainable, flexible, demand-oriented, efficient and labor-friendly way.
The food processors of the future: that is the mission of Next Tech Food Factories. Because we believe in a prominent role for key technologies in the food chains of the future in which food processors play an important role. These food chains are precise, circular, valuable and connected to people and society.
In Next Tech Food Factories, food processing companies, high-tech suppliers and machine builders are working together to develop, test and implement robotization, artificial intelligence and other smart technologies in food processing. Examples include cobots that can take over heavy or monotonous work from humans. In this way, key technologies help food processors to improve working conditions in the factory, increase labor productivity and set up business operations more efficiently and sustainably. More with fewer hands, but also with fewer emissions. Better for people, business and nature.
Next Tech Food Factories is the program office of AgriFood Capital and Brainport Development that enables the application of more smart technologies in the food processing industry. Advanced high-tech systems that help food processors operate more efficiently and sustainably, with a focus on quality and food safety. Smart technologies also contribute to better working conditions and higher labor productivity.
Next Tech Food Factories supports companies in their innovation processes.
Next Tech Food Factories supports companies in their innovation processes, among other things, with innovation vouchers, coaching, training and access to an excellent knowledge network. We organize this within these four projects:
The availability, grip and assurance of performing crop work correctly and the continuity of the business process are critical factors here. This is where the crop robot makes a difference.Read more!
