Last Thursday , 07.10.2021, the top-class C-level event "Digitize your Food" took place in the Swabian town of Wolfertschwenden, organized by the Open Industry 4.0 Alliance together with packaging expert MULTIVAC. The event brought 100 decision-makers together who experienced an impressive deep dive into the world of Food & Beverage industry, listened to exciting presentations and networked with each other in a professional atmosphere. A warm welcome by the host company MULTIVAC and a keynote speech by the Open Industry 4.0 Alliance were followed by expert talks, discussion rounds, and the presentation of a showcase.
Dr. Marius Grathwohl, Vice President Digital Products & Transformation at MULTIVAC, summed up the objective of the event as follows: "Industry 4.0 solutions are very complex, especially in a heterogeneous machine environment. As a founding member of the Open Industry 4.0 Alliance, we at MULTIVAC want to open up an interoperable ecosystem for our customers. Compatibility within, but also outside of our packaging solutions is our vision – always with the focus on customer benefits."
