Fired Up on the Front Lines of Food and Beverage

How to boost manufacturing performance and keep pace with the ever-growing demand in this important industry

The assembly line runs. Hands struggle to keep up with machines, packaging cookies, processing meat, bottling milk. Preparing the sustenance that lands on tables all over the world, giving us life. 

Food and beverage manufacturers ensure everyone’s survival, and they can’t stop producing, even in the face of a pandemic, when the rest of the world is forced to pause. The demand for food and beverages is ever-present--and in fact, ramps up during times of crisis. 

As Statista reported in March 2020, many food and beverage products saw significant sales growth. For example, the sales growth of oat milk increased by 347.3%, fresh meat alternative sales grew by 206.4%, and sales of powdered milk products grew by 126.3% in year over year sales.

So the demand for food and beverage products has risen higher than ever. How can food and beverage manufacturers stay on top of that demand?
