"Our involvement in this summit was driven by the significant transformation now underway within the food and beverage industry: demands on new methods of producing product; reformulations to remove artificial color, flavors, and ingredients; and different methods of delivery (bars, shakes) to meet the new consumer's needs for 'food on the go.' These transformations require changes in the way manufacturers source, make and deliver products. We understand the need for agility, responsiveness and standardization in manufacturing," said Doug Warren, Vice President, Industry Solutions Marketing, Schneider Electric.
