The Manufacturing Innovation Awards, presented by ProFood World, will be held on Tuesday, April 4. The awards recognize outstanding food and beverage processing and packaging innovation projects, including greenfield facilities and major line expansion/automation upgrades completed in the past 18 months. New-to-the-industry use of technology, major cost savings, flexible manufacturing, food safety and maintenance improvement achievements are among the judging criteria for this award.
