Comprehensive Automation Services for Industrial Food & Beverage Production

Successful food and beverage manufacturing depends on safe and streamlined processes. Whether you’re developing a new processing plant or retrofitting outdated controls, regulatory compliance and efficiency are key. E Tech Group designs and implements automation and controls for large-scale food and beverage manufacturers.

Our capabilities include turnkey factory automation for food and beverage manufacturers across the industry. Whether it’s plant control system upgrades for beverage bottling facilities, or creating new process automation solutions for alternative protein manufacturers in plant-based or cultured meats, E Tech Group’s deep domain expertise in the industry helps clients improve quality, capability and compliance.

Regulatory Compliance for the Food Industry Requires Integrated Automation

USDA and FDA regulations, product genealogy, and employee training are just some of the challenges that food and beverage manufacturers face. Our experienced engineers will develop and update automated systems with an emphasis on safety, so you can monitor these benchmarks without plant interruptions.

E Tech Group’s experience in the food and beverage industry allows us to support any size and extent of project, including facility startups, upgrades and retrofits, as well as project and construction management for our industry-leading partners.

Advanced Manufacturing Automation Solutions for Alternative & Cultivated Meat Production

With the rise of alternative proteins, E Tech Group has leveraged our food and beverage expertise to support this growing market. A particular challenge in this sector of food and beverage automation is that cultured meat startups experience immediate transitions upon approval by regulatory bodies. They require flexible systems that can be scaled and adapted at the drop of a hat.

Our automation engineers effectively implement the latest technology to help our cultivated meat clients compete and meet demand. Quality plant automation allows our alternative protein clients to continue to develop their products without interrupting current processes or their quality.
