The Indian food industry is gaining momentum with over 300 million processed and packaged food middle-class consumers. But today’s consumers are smart and demanding. They look for details and quality. In the current era, no food segment can survive if they lack the ‘health’ factor. What came in for their rescue is technology.
Leveraging innovative technologies are a crucial part of the modern food industry. These technologies have enabled food companies to provide their customers with healthy meals that are good for their physical as well as mental health. In a way, these technologies are providing food companies with an eye for detail and hygiene.
It won’t be an exaggeration to say that technology has brought a revolution in the food sector in terms of health and hygiene which was indeed the need of the hour in this post-Covid era. Let’s discuss in detail what it brought to the table for the consumers.
TECHNOLOGY THAT PROMOTED HEALTHY MEALS IN THE FOOD SECTOR
The introduction of robots in the food industry was a turning point for the industry. It changed the industry enormously and for the good. They made the food industry faster, more capable, and above all ‘healthier’.
With robots doing the task of serving meals, the fear of spreading viruses, especially during and post-pandemic reduced to quite an extent. This encouraged people to come out of their houses and enjoy their favorite meals in their favorite restaurants.
It allowed restaurants to ensure that their meals are healthy as they are made and served in a hygienic environment. It helped the entire food industry to stand back on its feet.
Smart Vending Machines
The concept of vending machines is not new. These vending machines are serving humans for decades and have a glorious history. Though it has gained enormous popularity and demand in the last decade as these machines evolved and became tech-savvy.
You can see these machines in schools, colleges, offices, apartments, hospitals, railway stations, airports, metro stations, banks, malls, movie theatres, and even in amusement parks.
The best part is that they are playing a crucial role in promoting health in all these locations.
School and college children, employees in the office, and even patients in hospitals can benefit from these machines. They will get healthy meals within their reach.
You must be wondering how drones are helping in making our meals healthy. Drones are working at the ground level. They are helping the farmers in the fields. Yes, you heard it right.
Whether it is increasing farm efficiency by tracking it through a GPS or checking the quality of soil as well as crops, they are playing a substantial role. These drones will detect and recognize crops that have been diseased and will react to them. They ensure that farmers get to deliver high-quality stuff to the consumers.
Food is the third most important thing after oxygen and water to survive. But if it is not healthy then it can make your survival tough. Even consumers have realized that it is high time to opt for healthier meals as such meals will keep them fit, energetic, positive, and disease-free. And technology is helping the entire food industry in serving its consumers.
