Fresh food businesses are faced with the challenge of creating a food safety culture, maintaining best practice and retaining customer confidence, while effectively managing overall costs.

Quality assurance and quality control are vital for food manufacturers. While quality assurance requires a product to be produced a certain way and match the product label, food quality control is more rigorous in its demands. Food quality control requires manufacturers to meet both safety and consistency demands.

Manufacturers must ensure they source ingredients from approved suppliers, meet specific recipe composition percentages, and maintain product standards. It is imperative that government regulations are met and that the food products on the shelves are safe to eat. This develops trusting, loyal consumers that make repeat purchases from brands that deliver on their quality promises.

Advanced technologies, including the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), can immensely improve food quality control measures and outcomes. Leveraging IIoT can help food manufacturers optimize production processes in reducing costs and waste, all while meeting—or exceeding—quality standards.

Quality assurance (QA) schemes for Fruit vegetable are designed to enable producers to demonstrate that their on-farm practices allow them to produce safe food products that meet Australian food safety standards under the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code (the Code).   The fresh fruit & vegetable industry is a fascinating place to be. Don’t think of it as watching asparagus growing in a field. Think of a vast industry that operates with just-in-time delivery of perishable products, many with limited shelf life and very specific storage temperatures. As someone said to me many years ago when he had a load of California table grapes stuck at the border, “This isn’t hardware, you know!”

Let’s note that automation does not mean replacing every human in your factory with a machine. In fact, most Industry 4.0 technologies are designed to empower factory employees. These tools can give employees time and energy back to solve bigger, more complex problems.

Live monitoring enables teams to catch quality issues faster. Live alerting can notify teams about a machine or production issue early, giving them the ability to react quickly and minimize the impact on quality. Over time, Machine Learning (ML) can identify the conditions under which these issues occur. This makes it easier for teams to reduce product and equipment variability.

Comprehensive, easy-to-read dashboards displaying machine uptimes and statuses enable employees to have a pulse on their production, whether they are working from a control room or remotely. These tools save both time and money while making it easier for teams to improve uptime and reliability.

The QC people ensure that whatever arrives at their back door is what was ordered by the buyers. It has to be fresh, crisp and bright. If it is dull, wilted, discolored or decayed, it isn’t going to make it to the retail displays. Decisions have to be taken quickly. Is it to be rejected or regraded? Was it in suitable shipping condition before it left its point of origin, or was it damaged in transit? Is it the correct variety, size, color, firmness or sweetness? 

This measurement is made with a refractometer and allows to know the amount of sugar present in a sample, normally known as the brix scale. This number allows not only to know the amount of sugars, but also indicates the maturity of the fruit and indicates the best time to harvest it. 

In addition to improving food quality control efforts, Industry 4.0 tools can also retain employees, boost morale, and improve worker safety. When considering a smart factory, companies often want to automate as many processes as possible. In fact, automated tools can be very beneficial for your teams and take tedious or dangerous tasks from your human workforce. While cost will always be a factor with technology it’s worth considering the monumental value it can have on your organization.

When it comes to buying in a supermarket, a fruit & vegetable store or in a market, they tend to recognize certain characteristics of the fruits and vegetables they consume: the touch, the size, the consistency and, of course, the flavor. To make this experience consistent, all fruits and vegetables go through a quality control that allows to test that what the consumer is expecting will be effectively fulfilled.

It is obtained through the juice of the fruit with a pH electrode. In addition to the level of acidity present in the product being known, it allows to know what possibility exists of proliferation of microbes, since this factor directly affects the ease with which external agents can enter.

Saving time and energy aren’t the only benefits of Artificial Intelligence (AI). AI can help employees learn more about their process by presenting new complex and counterintuitive insights that may otherwise go undetected. For example, AI may discover that a company could save energy by running a fryer at a higher, consistent temperature instead of varying between a wide range of temperatures.

AI can also help employees (especially process experts) validate their instincts. Pairing implicit knowledge with AI discoveries enables employees to investigate their intuition with data. The technology handles the heavy-lifting of wrangling data and complex calculations while employees focus on using their unique process insights.
