The suppliers you choose for your business have a direct impact on your operations for better or worse. While the latest technology may look impressive, it’s important for food producers to consider several aspects of a robotic automation supplier before deciding whether the solution is right for your product and operations. Experience, knowledge of sanitary design, ability to validate solutions, willingness to share risks, and ability to provide trained support, makes the difference. By doing your homework, asking some tough questions and seeing the solution at work in-person, you can mitigate significant risk.
