Improving food manufacturing in North America with Digital Twins


The food manufacturing industry is one of the largest sectors in North America. In 2020 alone, food retailing manufacturers supplied $1.69 trillion worth of food to US consumers. This is a major task for the ~36,500 food and beverage processing facilities in the US, which were owned by ~31,400 companies (according to the most recent Economic Census in 2017).

Still, the industry is changing. As the labor shortage continues, regulations change, and consumers demand new products, US food manufacturers need more advanced tools and strategies to remain competitive.

Digital Twins are at the forefront of many digital transformation initiatives, but are they just a buzzword? Or is there real value in the benefits Digital Twins offer?
