For the fourth straight year, automation/information/ integration ranks as the number one trend in food processing according to Food Engineering's 1999 Manufacturing Trends Survey. However, only 3.2 percent of the processors surveyed have truly top-to-bottom integration. There is still a lot to learn and a long way to go for many processors. A great opportunity to learn about automation is coming soon in Atlanta. Plan to attend Food Automation 2000.
