Tetra Pak is set to reveal its factory of the future at Hannover Messe 2019. It is said that the factory will transform how food manufacturing plants operate. The factory will contain machines with the capability of talking to one another. This will allow the machines to automatically take on tasks which will include ordering and delivering parts and diagnosing problems. Tetra Pak hopes that the factory will enable the workforce to focus on managing the plant, increasing the production and minimising errors and product waste.

“We are in a period where the market is changing at high speed. Consumer demands coupled with regulations require a new way of food manufacturing that is much more efficient and food safety guaranteed. At the same time, we believe humans should continue to be at the centre of the management of food manufacturing, with digital solutions as their support,” said Johan Nilsson of Tetra Pak.
