With its 3D, model-based views, Building Information Modelling (BIM) is enabling companies throughout the food and beverage industry to gain a more complete view of their facilities today, and plan for future changes more effectively. Despite its name, BIM is not just for “buildings”: Instead, forward-thinking companies are using BIM to make key operational improvements too. Join Hixson Architecture & Engineering as we present the next Food Plant of the Future webinar, Using BIM for Operational Success. Read More
Tetra Pak’s expertise is rooted in deep experience with our own factories as well as our work on a diverse range of global projects. In this webinar, we’ll share strategies tailored for the food and beverage industry, including how to improve business performance by understanding losses, implementing sustainable improvements and achieving a higher, more flexible and predictable production.

Virtually every food and beverage company is talking about innovation and digitalization. Leveraging digitalization advantages using a strict interaction between the three steps of the value chain: Ideation, Realization and Utilization is necessary for you to stay ahead in the innovation race. A common challenge in the food industry is to bring new products to market in a timely and cost effective manner. Paying attention to quality during production and ensuring efficiency of process by optimizing operating conditions are few of the challenges facing the industry. Computer modeling and simulation solutions including; computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and particle modeling with Discrete Element Method (DEM) have been identified as key enabling technologies. Technologies like these are making a huge impact on many of the challenges that surround scale-up; capable of reducing operating costs across manufacturing and quality divisions.
Learn how to prepare your facility for the intensifying frequency and scrutiny of regulatory audits, how to proactively avoid citations, and how to quickly restore compliance. As the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) places a greater emphasis on preventing contamination, food and beverage facilities need to prepare and implement preventive control plans to expedite repairs. Attendees will discover the benefits of taking a virtual tour of a food and beverage facility with a NACE-Certified Coatings Professional from Sherwin-Williams to help identify common areas of concern, and how to develop comprehensive facility coatings repair specifications designed to accelerate compliance fixes – whether before or after third-party audits.
In this webinar we are going to dive into the area of Lab and Research Management, key to all other steps in the process of developing and manufacturing food and beverage products. If you want to properly manage the quality demands in this Digital Age and be assured your organization is equipped to avoid quality issues and product recalls; aligning and streamlining the entire value chain is key. We’ll explain how you can coordinate all the lab activities performed by research teams as well as manufacturing plants to deliver centralized quality test management. While assuring common QA/QC methods and procedures used across multiple plants and R&D labs with a single unified view on the quality of operations and research: Read More
ON DEMAND: A reliable plant is a safe plant, a wise person once said. It’s also a profitable one, and more likely to give its customers the quality and consistency they expect from their favorite brands. So with the promised wave of ubiquitous sensing and connected devices, we may soon see new ways of maximizing that value, quality, safety and profitability through predictive, reliability centered maintenance. But if those tools and analytics are not built on a stable, simple, absolutely reliable platform we may spend more energy worrying about the tools than the problems they should fix. This webinar will take a look at secure, simple and reliable platforms that can support the promise of the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things).
The FDA and leaders across the food safety industry (academics, certifying body leaders, GFSI leaders) fully agree that HACCP hazardous analysis is necessary for establishing FSMA Food Safety Plan preventive controls. This webinar will prepare attendees to meet this requirement by discussing the fundamentals of HACCP and hazardous analysis leading to FSMA. Read More
On Demand Attendees will gain an understanding of MasoSine sinusoidal positive displacement pump technology for improved food processing. MasoSine pumps deliver high suction capability to handle viscous products and offers significant advantages over alternative technologies. MasoSine’s sinusoidal rotor gently carries fluid through the pump to dramatically reduce shear, while cutting power consumption by up to 50% with high viscosity fluids.
In this webinar, we will discuss ways design exploration delivers innovative solutions to the most complex design and production challenges. These include leveraging your current investment in simulation tools and computing resources, automation of the digital product development process
Efficient searching of the design space, generating insight into best design practices and discovering the most lucrative areas of the available design landscape, how other companies have been successful with design exploration. Read More
This webinar will: provide an overview of important FSMA guidelines, summarize the current challenges faced in the design of food production operations, discuss engineering, operational and procedural changes required, and learn how process systems engineering and statistical techniques can be employed at the operational as well as supply chain level to improve safety and overall efficiency Read More
