Food Manufacturing offers a from-the-field perspective, keeping U.S. food processing plant managers, engineering personnel, facility maintenance professionals and other decision makers fully apprised of new product information, technology and processes.
The estimated 30,940 establishments that make up the $564 billion annual wholesale food and beverage processing industry demand the utmost attention to safety and quality. While niche industries such as craft beer, organic vegetables, or gluten-free offerings have risen in popularity, Food Manufacturing research has found that 82% of all production occurs at 23% of all locations. Furthermore, 19% of all establishments have 50 or more employees and control 89.4% of the market ($504 billion).
This leads to a production environment focused on larger quantities in order to offset smaller margins at most larger processing facilities. On the plant floor, solutions to lowering equipment down-time, improving line change-over rates, and avoiding disastrous quality control situations like recalls are all essential to long-term success and enterprise viability.
Regulatory compliance, constantly changing consumer tastes, processing efficiency, quality and safety are just a handful of the critical issues that drive the need for food and beverage manufacturers to stay informed.
