The key steps meat companies need to take to achieve a smart factory in line with Industry 4.0 will be the major focus of a series of Meat Business Days being held by food IT software specialist CSB-System in Karlsruhe, Germany from 12th – 16th September.
As well a series of presentations from industry experts from Fraunhofer IAO, Multivac and CSB-System, the event will also include tours of state-of-the art meat producers in Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium, each of whom has already taken great strides in becoming a smart meat factory.
The Meat Business Days event is dedicated to innovative technologies and solutions for meat production of the future. The focus will be on software, automation and image processing solutions to make the digital transformation a successful one.
With business models, value-added chains, processes and consumer behaviour all becoming increasingly digitally connected, more efficient and more transparent, the event will examine which investments in digitalisation and automation are necessary to fully exploit the potential of the intelligent factory and the benefits these will bring to the meat industry.
For the factory tours, participants can choose to visit Wolf Wurstspezialitäten GmbH, EDEKA Südwest Fleisch GmbH or Fleischhof Rasting GmbH in Germany, ProMessa BV in the Netherlands; or Veviba S.A. in Belgium.
