The global population is growing, prosperity is growing and food demands are rising. These factors lead to a change in consumer trends and food habits. Food chains are globalized and climate regulations are tightening. The food industry constantly changing and opens up opportunities and obstacles in the industry. In a world where trade flows are globalized and connected, there are many complex issues associated with handling food; transfer pricing, packaging, various taxes, durability, and product transparency. Besides, the price of local produce can have significant price fluctuations.
There are many opportunities and perspectives, but also many unpredictability, challenges, and pitfalls to make costly mistakes that can complicate and delay your production flow. Error settings in the machines can be expensive if the product error is first detected in the quality control.
Another key challenge that many manufacturing companies face is getting the necessary amount of manpower to keep up with demand.

Companies in the food industry must continuously reduce costs while keeping up with demand, meeting stringent demands from retailers and food regulators to maintain and expand market share.
