Harnessing the Power of Modelling & Simulation in the Food and Drink Industry

Harnessing the Power of Modelling & Simulation in the Food and Drink Industry

Wednesday 27 September 2023 | Birmingham, UK


Globally, the food and drinks industry is worth over $5 trillion annually. That’s more than the automotive and oil & gas industries put together. The processes and technologies involved are complex and interlinked – engineering modelling and simulation (M&S) can be crucial in many of these processes. From equipment design to product manufacturing, packaging, and distribution, simulation can help to optimize every step of the process, saving time, money, and resources: M&S can transform the way you work and innovate.

This one day face-to-face seminar follows the previous webinar held on May 3rd and will bring together simulation users throughout this wide-ranging economic sector. The group will share experiences, examine and solve unique industry-specific problems, and create a vibrant community of analysts and designers to drive the technology forward in the world of food and drinks.

The seminar aims to communicate how engineering modelling and simulation is being used in the Food and Drink Industry. Through industry leaders and high level academic presentations, delegates will gain an appreciation for the breadth and depth of modelling applications in the industry as well as see how other organisations and research institutes are using this strategy to transform the way they work and innovate. We also hoping to have presentations and discussion addressing the challenges of implementing modelling and simulation including feedstock variation and in-line material characterisation and how such modelling leads to cost-effective process optimisation.


The anticipated contents of the day and potential presentations will cover the following themes:-

  • Technical introduction/overview – What is modelling and simulation and how can we use it?
  • Business strategy and how to bring engineering simulation into an organisation
  • Complex materials including characterisation and exploitation of in-line sensors for validation purposes
  • Success Stories and War stories – Lessons people have learnt.
