The industry manufacturing agribusiness equipment is a leading sector in the Italian economy. Stimulated by the success of Italian food & beverage through constant innovation, it has raised the quality of our food products
It is difficult to answer a certain question which should be asked, namely, whether the Italian food and agriculture sector’s worldwide success is driving the engineering industry or whether the technology, research and continual evolution of the engineering industry applied to food & beverage has determined its success. Probably they are both true. Just as Italy is an undisputed leader in terms of the quality of its agribusiness products, the engineering industry making the equipment to produce our food and wine treasures has achieved a leading position in many world markets. Moreover, entire sectors of our agribusiness production, from pasta to preserves, from extra virgin olive oil to cold meats and dairy products, have boomed thanks to the engineering industry’s contribution. Its current exploration of latest technologies is not just for process automation and optimization, but especially to guarantee maximum safety and hygiene for the food products, with scrupulous respect for their organoleptic properties and territorial identity. This bond between engineering industry and food production starts from agricultural machinery and permeates down to the research and quality control laboratories, turning Italy into a large single centre of excellence.
