Two European giants at the forefront of merging food technology developments with the Internet of Things (IoT) have strengthened their ties.

Bühler and Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions have announced their intention to bring more innovative – IoT connected products – to market through increased collaboration, with new products expected next year.

Boosting research and development ties will be central to the plans as the pair look to utilise Bosch know-how in electronics, sensor technology, and software around IoT for the food processing industry.

“We are excited to continue and extend our partnership with Bühler, a major industry specialist and leading company in the field of food processing technologies,” said Thorsten Müller, CEO of Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions. ”At Bosch, we combine experience gained from our own manufacturing activities in more than 250 plants with our expertise as a leading provider of electronics, sensors and software for industrial IoT solutions. We are not only optimising our own worldwide manufacturing base, we are also actively seeking to work with partners like Bühler to build a value creation network beyond company boundaries and turn Industry 4.0 into reality.”
