  • Location Mondelez International, Bournville, Birmingham, B30 2LU, UK.


Globally, the food and drinks industry is worth over $5 trillion annually. That’s more than both the automotive and oil and gas industries. The processes and technologies involved are complex and interlinked – engineering modelling and simulation (M&S) is crucial in many of these processes. From equipment design to product manufacturing, packaging, and distribution, simulation can optimise every step of the process, saving time, money, and resources: M&S can transform the way you work and innovate.

This exclusive NAFEMS seminar will give you an insight into just how widely-used simulation is becoming in the food and drink industry, and let you peak behind the scenes at how some major corporations and research institutes are transforming their processes and products using simulation.
