How to become the global leader in robotic food processing - Roythornes Food Business Breakfast

The UK will be the global market leader for robotic food processing. At the recent Roythornes' Food Business Breakfast, Samantha Norman (BEng) shared how OAL is working with academia, customers and the supply chain to make this vision a reality.

Number 1 in robotic food processing

It sounds good, doesn’t it? 

The UK food industry is widely recognised as the global leader in convenience food and innovation but our ability to embrace automation, digital and robotics is critical to ensuring our leadership. It's this leadership that will ensure strong exports and create new jobs in the largest UK manufacturing industry.

We must work together as a supply chain to realise this vision.

Samantha shared how OAL are working with our partners to lead the robotic revolution in ingredient handling and processing. Over 150 delegates from across the supply chain caught a glimpse of this future with a live demonstration of our APRIL Robotics Weighing System.

Rather than a person handling and weighing out ingredients by hand, APRIL automates the task!

Mark Dodds, Marketing Manager at Roythornes Solicitors explained: “Our Food Business Breakfast has become a key staple in the networking calendar for business professionals based in both Peterborough and other areas of the UK.
“Improved efficiency, reduced labour costs and reliability are all potential benefits to implementing robotics, and Sam offered an interesting perspective on what this actually means in practice, exploring the use of robots in the sector and how the industry needs to work collaboratively in order to stay flexible and compete with organisations within Europe and across the world.”

We'd like to thank Roythornes for organising a fantastic event!
