LAKE FOREST, Calif. – July 14, 2016 – Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation, today announced it is a founding partner of a Food & Beverage Manufacturing Summit, which will be hosted by marcus evans. Event will be co-founded with Callisto Integration, Inc. to bring together a group of executives, solution partners and industry thought leaders for focused discussion. The main topics driving the summit agenda are: sustainability, FSMA/FDA regulations, aligning NPI with manufacturing processes, and the convergence of operational technology with internet technology within the plant.

"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.

The marcus evans Food & Beverage Manufacturing Summit will take place November 10-11, 2016, at The Drake Hotel in Chicago, Illinois.
