FoodNavigator-Asia will introduce a new monthly, multimedia feature in 2019 to shine the spotlight on the region’s innovators who are pioneering the food and beverage sector’s transformation to industry 4.0.

Titled Asia’s Food Future: Industry 4.0, ​the feature will focus on the technological, processing and equipment innovations that can help the sector meet the production and supply chain challenges of today and tomorrow.

FoodNavigator-Asia editor-in-chief Gary Scattergood said: Industry 4.0 has the potential to revolutionise Asia’s food and beverage industry thanks to innovations spanning the Internet of Things, cloud computing, big data and blockchain, RFID and 3-D printing offering a plethora of new technological solutions.

This will enable the industry become ‘predictive’ instead of merely proactive. Industry 4.0 can provide benefits in terms of smart manufacturing, plant reliability and efficiency, precision robotics, traceability, logistics, food safety, sustainability and NPD conception.


This in-depth monthly series, featuring multimedia content, text interviews and infographics will shine the spotlight on the APAC manufacturers who are the early-adopters of industry 4.0, and drill down into the benefits of the changes they are making.

"It will also look at the solutions that they are investing in, share the expertise of equipment suppliers, and look at the opportunities and barriers to industry-wide implementation with the aid of third-party experts.”

The new multimedia feature will span interviews, video and infographics.

The first, to be published on a dedicated ‘Editor’s Spotlight’ newsletter and sent to our extensive global database of readers in mid-February, will focus on the Internet of Things. March’s topic will be blockchain.
