food & beverage 

Innovative process automation and control solutions designed for flexibility to help your operations adapt to ever evolving consumer demands! 

The food and beverage industry is very important to our daily lives, along with water and wastewater, both in terms of providing us with food and drink when we want it but also in a safe manner. Dairy products, fruit and veg, meat, bread, soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, and pet food – are things we take for granted as being readily available and safe to consume whenever and wherever we are.  

From a governance perspective, strict regulations are in place to ensure food is produced and handled in the correct way. From a manufacturer’s brand and reputation viewpoint, product quality and consistency are equally important – the two go hand in hand. Australia produces most of its own food and exports a large amount overseas where we have a reputation for producing safe and high-quality products. 

This consumer behaviour and influence from external factors such as government regulations, creates a challenge for food and beverage manufacturers as demands, along with tastes and expectations fluctuate, putting pressure on processes to adapt while also ensuring their products are competitively priced and that the venture is profitable.  

At Triple i, we understand that to be successful in high and fluctuating demand industries and market segments, enhancements using real-time data focusing on incremental changes work best. With the latest automation and control processes and leading technologies, our team can aid in providing efficient and effective actionable ways to meet consumer demands as they occur.  

With over 35 years of experience across the automation and control industry, and in particular the food and beverage industry, we have the capability and expertise to help optimise production, lower prices, improve quality and reliability of supply, and expand variety, while maintaining a commitment to sustainability. We can help provide you with a competitive advantage now and into the future!

WHAT TRIPLE I OFFER YOUR FOOD & BEVERAGE OPERATIONS?

The food and beverage industry is vast with various market segments, creating a diverse and dynamic marketplace. This brings challenges for manufacturers as one solution does not suit all operations. Specialty product knowledge and consumer information are required to ensure operations are best designed to meet production requirements, while also considering efficiencies and changes from demand and external influences.  

At Triple i, we understand that each market segment, and business within, has different needs, and as such work with them as supply partners to ensure solutions are fit-for-purpose, and that needs are met. Market segments and their various applications include, but are not limited to agriculture, bakery and confectionery, beverage, dairy, ingredients, food retail, meat, poultry and seafood, sugar, and aquaculture.  

Triple i can provide specialised personnel who have the experience and application knowledge required in these areas, especially: 

  • Automation and electrical engineers for control and electrical systems, measurement, and reporting.
  • Functional and machine safety, HAZOPS, design, audits, and reviews.
  • Electricians for installation and maintenance.
  • Instrument technicians for correct installation and calibration of key measurement parameters as well as calibration management.
  • Mechanical fitters to fabricate, install and maintain the various plant equipment around the site.

      Food safety and quality control are important factors in the food and beverage sector, and this is reflected in design as well as work and maintenance practices. Our team has the expertise to ensure the right equipment and accurate measurement of key parameters, such as temperature, flow, pressure, and analytical considerations, are put into place, schedule regular calibration of critical equipment, maintain the traceability of references to known standards, along with implementing good procedures and record keeping. 

      We understand that processes can vary and become complex when making food and beverages safely, and as such tracking of products and sterilisation are a key focus not only to ensure where products have originated from but what has happened to them in the production process. This not only can become detrimental to the bottom line but provide negative effects on branding if not managed properly. Our automation and control solutions provide a safeguard for quality and control, making it possible to trace batches and related goods so that they can be tested or recalled if potentially contaminated.  

      Our automation and control solutions, with the inclusion of the latest innovation and technologies, have proven to streamline food and beverage production processes including but are not limited to, growing, and harvesting, transportation to a production facility, tracking of products from their origin, storage of food, preparation, processing, cooking, packaging, labeling, storage and refrigeration, transport, and distribution to the end-user.  

      Why choose Triple i as your Solutions Partner?

      Triple i provide food and beverage operations with process automation and control solutions that are fit-for-purpose. We investigate each project and devise solutions that are best suited to resolve issues, or which address specific requirements, rather than providing a one-fits-all approach or selling what could be sold to make a profit.  

      Our customer-centric approach means you are appointed a dedicated site supervisor or project manager who is responsible for intercompany communication, along with the efficient delivery of project outcomes. With strategies that not only lead to optimised performance, better quality assurance, and an improved commitment to sustainability, we can help your operations adapt to ever-evolving consumer demands – providing a measurable competitive advantage!
