The Food Processing Industry: How It WorksThe world’s food supply is rapidly becoming a consumer-driven industry, with growing demand and ever-increasing demand for food products, particularly packaged food products.
The demand for more and more food products in the form of food and beverage products has driven the rapid expansion of the food and food processing industries, and as a result, the food supply has become increasingly complex.
This article examines the evolution of food processing over the last 150 years.
In addition, it looks at the changing nature of the processing process, the impact of technology on food production, and how the supply chains of food processors have evolved to support this rapid expansion.
The article discusses the development of new food processing processes, the role of microprocessor technology in the modern food supply chain, and the role that new technologies are playing in the global food supply chains.
