The Future of Automation at iba 2023.
There’s nothing quite like going to a trade show. This year, we’ll be headed to iba in Munich! iba is the world’s leading trade fair for bakery, confectionery, and snacks where the latest trends and innovations in the industry are presented. This trade show is held at the Munich exhibition center every three years, however, due to the pandemic, it was postponed. Finally, from October 22 – 26, 2023 iba will open its doors once again.

While there are plenty of things I am looking forward to seeing at iba, as a digital marketer with a passion for technology I am most excited to see how automation and robotics will make an appearance at this year’s show.

Saving Time and Money with Automation

These days more and more commercial bakeries are adopting automation and robotics in order to streamline production processes, improve efficiency, and keep quality consistent. Alongside bakery software used to manage inventory digitally, accept online orders, and consolidate administrative tasks, bakery equipment is also moving towards more automation. We can expect to see more smart ovens, automated mixers, dough dividers, proofers, and packaging systems being utilized for large-scale production. In modern-day bakeries, automation, and robotics are vital tools for managing labor shortages and cutting costs. So, I’ll definitely be taking notes on all the equipment that falls under these categories on the show floor!
