The use of robotics in the modern food industry has increased over recent years because of many advantages. However, the industry has not taken to the technology with the same pace as the automotive and other industries due to technical and some other reasons. The high investment rate, variable nature of food products, fragile and perishable characteristics of food items, hygienic and sterilization requirements, high production volume rates are making hindrance in usage of robotics in industry but the opportunity still exists to deliver significant benefits in terms of increased food shelf life, cost reductions and flexibility. The challenge is to develop low-cost, flexible, hygienic and intelligent machines for the food industry. This is a not tough as the technologies now exist to achieve it. The benefits that could be gained if systems are designed, installed and operated well could decide who will be the major food manufacturers of convenience foods in the future.
