Bühler and Whitworth Bros—the UK’s largest miller—have opened a high-tech flour plant called Mill E3 at Whitley Bridge in Yorkshire, England. The data generated and analyzed at the Whitley Bridge plant will drive the evolution of milling technology from the current data assisted mill into a plant capable of using its own process parameters in a closed loop to optimize production. This development of the self-adjusting mill will be the precursor to the SmartMill.
Suppose you want a process to pasteurize milk without shearing it—while keeping the flavors in and killing any bugs along the way, extending the shelf life beyond ordinary pasteurization. This new technology, Millisecond Technology (MST), offers dairy producers long-life products with the same nutritional values that consumers want.
On Demand The supply chain remains in flux for food processors, but many of the logistics challenges are out of their control. However, technology exists to help processors make sense of existing data to forecast and manage ingredient availability, product production schedules, shipment and delivery of finished foods, catch bad batches and mitigate recalls, and make proactive decisions to move their business forward, and not be reactive based on changing supply chain conditions.
