The agri-food sector is made up of large groups and family-owned companies whose sites are generally medium to small in size, compared to other industries.
Industrial food production is often synonymous with high volumes at low margins and a wide variety of products. The significant competition and the innovations expected by the consumers push the agri-food sector towards a search for constant improvement and require flexibility in the organisation of the production. The food industry is characterised by a large workforce and production variability, requiring many skills and regular use of temporary workers.
Historically, this sector has not been well equipped with production management tools, such as MES, and has largely relied on Excel-based solutions. Today, the food industry is undergoing a digital transformation. Industry 4.0 is a natural part of the transformation process of the agri-food sector. These innovations not only improve productivity but also reduce manufacturing costs.
