Food & Beverage Processing

Safe, Strong, and Durable Solutions

Healthcare Banner

While food and beverage facility managers and operators navigate the challenges outlined previously, they must find solutions that match the issues they face. Controls, Lighting, Electrical, and Network Infrastructure all have varying abilities to satisfy at least one of the food and beverage processing facilities’ challenges related to Industry 4.0, AI and IIOT, sustainability, safety and compliance, operational efficiency and supply chain management, as reflected in the below chart.

Exterior Areas

Exterior areas benefit from lighting to ensure worker and guest safety, efficient power for equipment and electrical vehicles with connectivity for access control and video surveillance.

Receiving Areas

Receiving areas demand precise lighting for clear visibility of incoming materials, supported by electrical power to operate transport equipment, enhanced with a network that allows connectivity for supply management and communication.

Preparation Areas

Preparation areas demand task-based lighting to drive concentration during inspection, robust power solutions for food prep equipment, with reliable network connectivity for critical supply chain operational activities.

Processing Areas

Processing areas are optimized with precise illumination for safe operations and comprehensive electrical services to manage IIoT technology, supplemented with network connectivity for streamlined communication and real-time data.

Labs and Testing Areas

Labs and testing areas call for precise lighting for clarity and efficiency with GFCI-protected power for safety and network reliability to support data transfer for laboratory services and equipment.

Refrigeration Rooms

Refrigeration rooms are equipped with energy-efficient lighting, power for OSHA-compliant watertight devices, and network connectivity that enables remote monitoring and management of temperature levels for optimal food storage conditions.

Office Areas

Office Areas are optimized with efficient lighting to enhance productivity, with appropriate network and power to support office equipment, work devices, and remote desk-based availability for permanent and visiting staff.

Packaging Rooms

Packaging Rooms require optimal lighting to perform packaging and shipping tasks, a heavy-duty code compliant electrical infrastructure to support packaging equipment, and seamless Wi-Fi connection for real-time data exchange.

Storage Areas

Storage Spaces call for NSF-rated lighting to ensure food storage compliance, resilient power in corrosive environments and network availability for real-time monitoring of storage conditions for efficient inventory management.
