Strengthening food processing facilities design & operational processes through innovation and technology to ensure consistent, high quality, and high-volume product output.

Plant Design and Operations Summit (Food, Beverages & Nutraceuticals)

Food processing sector in India is said to be worth $100 billion, yet it has huge growth potential and offers opportunities that remain to be tapped. The sector is of key importance, as it holds the vital link between agriculture and industry. In the past few years, many companies have expanded their production and new players have entered the market.

The design of food production facilities compelled with plant automation must also balance the need for productive layouts with food safety considerations. A facility layout that will help reduce cross contamination caused by food-borne pathogens, food allergens, and people and product flow while producing products efficiently requires careful thought and planning. This planning effort must be followed by implementing sound facility design principles that allow a facility to operate both efficiently and, in a food safe manner.

The Plant Design & Operations Summit will focus on design, operations and management of food processing facilities which ensure they are strategic, sustainable, efficient, cost effective and scalable.
