Peterborough’s business community will have the opportunity to come face-to-face with the cutting-edge robotic technology which has revolutionised procedures of food manufacturers across the UK, at an event organised and hosted by Roythornes Solicitors on April 26.
Held at the Kingsgate Conference Centre in Peterborough, Roythornes – a national law firm which specialises in food and drink – will welcome more than 100 delegates from across the sector for a morning of networking, refreshments and to share best practice with fellow industry professionals.
The event aims to bring together a diverse range of organisations, including food producers, machinery suppliers and professional services, to create new opportunities for business collaboration with likeminded experts.
Mark Dodds, marketing manager at Roythornes Solicitors said: “Our biannual Food Business Breakfast has become a key staple in the networking calendar for business professionals based in both Peterborough and other areas of the UK, and we are delighted to be joined by Jake Norman for what will be our eighth event.”
Jake Norman, innovation & marketing manager at OAL – APRIL™ Robotics, will join representatives from the law firm as keynote speaker.
Mark added: “Robots have already been part of the food sector for a number of years, but with rising pressures on costs and a focus on productivity, their rate of introduction is increasing as never before.
“Improved efficiency, reduced labour costs and reliability are all potential benefits to implementing robotics, but Jake will be able to offer an interesting perspective on what this actually means in practice, exploring the use of robots in the sector and how the industry needs to go collaborative in order to stay flexible.
“We’re looking forward to what is set to be another insightful event and a great opportunity to see the advantage the implementation of robotics could bring to the food manufacturing industry.”
The Food Business Breakfast: The Robots are Coming takes place on April 26, 7:30-9:30am at KingsGate Conference Centre, Peterborough. For more information and to register attendance, visit www.roythornes.co.uk/site/events.
