Agribusiness is coping with rising labor costs, high labor turnover and increasing costs from food loss and waste. The consequences of the COVID-19 crisis, including virus outbreaks in processing and packaging facilities and the related shutdowns, have intensified these challenges.
Agribusinesses face an urgent imperative to implement automation and artificial intelligence in their quality operations – the economics of the industry demand it. In this presentation, we will demonstrate how AI-enabled automation can make food quality assessment better, faster and operationally efficient across the food supply chain. We will explore the challenges of developing and implementing AI solutions for the food industry and present examples of its value, which ultimately results in improved food quality and a significant reduction in food waste.
