Our solutions cover the complete spectrum—from small and medium capacities up to major industrial large-scale production—and provide the customer with the flexibility to respond to such trends. With our expertise in the field of raw materials and processes, we also support customers in developing products adapted to local specialties and tastes,” says Johannes Wick, CEO Grains & Food at Bühler.
The Bühler Networking Days 2017 at Interpack
Following the success of the Bühler Networking Days 2016 at Bühler’s headquarters in Uzwil, the technology group now presents this customer event with a new edition: “The food industry faces huge challenges. By 2050, we will have 9 billion people to feed. This will only be successful, if we develop innovative nutrition solutions, for example in the field of alternative proteins, and if we achieve a massive reduction of the food losses through better preservation of raw materials and removal of contaminated materials. At the same time, we have to increase transparency and efficiency using IoT technologies and make the value chain sustainable. IoT offers the opportunity to optimize the value by reducing energy consumption and eliminating food losses,“ explains Ian Roberts, CTO of Bühler. These topics will be addressed by Bühler specialists and customers from all over the world in the “Bühler Global Village” at the Bühler booth.
The tailored service completes the range
At Interpack, Bühler will also introduce 20 product and process innovations. Highlights include the self-optimizing “Smart Chocolate Factory,” the new molding plant ChocoBotic for production of small batches and seasonal items, and the Solano roaster with integrated pasteurization. Visitors and customers will find further innovations on the Bühler event page. “With Bühler, customers not only obtain the best technology but also a reliable partner who is present worldwide to support them from the product idea through the entire life cycle of a processing plant,” states CEO Stefan Scheiber. At Interpack, Bühler will present new information about the worldwide application centers, where specialists help customers differentiate themselves in the market by developing new processes and products. The market leader also introduces its comprehensive range of services in the fields of customer service, training, retrofitting, and automation.
