Innovation and technology are competitive advantages driving manufacturers toward a sustainable future. There are solutions for improving efficiency, quality and sustainability in every activity of the supply chain from farming to processing, and packaging to warehousing. Digitalization and mobility can create higher performance and flexibility while also minimizing losses and time in areas such as chicken deboning or through the use of offsite analysis to increase productivity and precision. Digitalization also helps gain customer trust due to the quality and consistency of production, reliability of data and traceability.
Innovation is key to overcoming many global challenges. Coupled with technology, it will propel industry into a more sustainable future.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been widely accepted and adopted in operations including; processing and packaging lines, and logistics and material handling solutions. In the quest to improve performance there are innovations that allow manufacturers to help protect the environment through energy saving, zero waste processes, use of degradable and compostable materials and thinner films that can still maintain product integrity and longevity. These are just some of the examples of smart future innovations that will be showcased at ProPak Asia this year.
“In our modern interconnected and highly competitive markets businesses must adopt new innovations and technology in order to grow and meet ever-changing consumer demands. The development of technology leads to innovation that can provide the driving force to greater business. ProPak Asia is here to serve global processing and packaging industry with new innovations and technology from around the world. It connects the future of innovation with the industry of today,” said Mr. Justin Pau, General Manager of UBM Asia (Thailand) Co., Ltd.
“To pull the country out of a middle-income trap and develop it into an innovative and dynamic nation, Thailand 4.0 was initiated with technology and innovation as key factors in achieving its goals. The government has established a strong environment for industry to invest and improve business through various measures and policies. There is no better time than the present for industries to find new solutions to create added value and improve capabilities. All of these are available at ProPak Asia, which is a significant driver for the country and a place where industry is always supported from every angle,” added Mrs. Wanpen Rattanakangwal, Director, Division of Creative Industry Development, of Industrial Promotion (DIP).
