Next stop, the Expo

We have a properly full exhibition hall, so I almost can’t think of where all these cheeses are going to be put, but there is enough room for all of the exhibitors, the seminars and the cheeses at the Staffordshire County Showground next week on 27 June. Like a big holiday, it is almost here and we are beside ourselves with excitement at the prospect of exhibitors such as PDV Consultants, Organic Herd, Pedrollo Distribution Ltd, OptaHaul and 6ix Process Design Ltd (6PD) joining us, along with speakers such as AB Dairy, Infor, Meurens and Ever.Ag.

John Tobin, the speaker and president of MES at Ever.Ag, has over 25 years’ experience in the deployment of MES systems in the food and beverage industries. Some of these projects include automation of production processes on SCADA systems, distributed control systems, the definition, design and implementation of corporate MES strategies.

He regularly conducts MES consultancy exercises on behalf of Orbis for a range of clients including Diageo, Glanbia, Ornua, DFA and Baxter Pharmaceutical. He has led the initiative within Ever.Ag to specialise in the area of operational intelligence and digitization for food and beverage.

He holds a B.E. in mechanical engineering and is a member of the Institute of Engineers of Ireland. He has presented at a number of international conferences for MESA, ISA, WBF, Aspentech and has co-authored various publications in industrial journals.

Ever.Ag’s MES OPS 4.0 software is installed in multiple sites across the globe. The company’s mission is to create innovative AgTech solutions and services that empower agriculture, food, and beverage supply chains to feed a growing world. Ever.Ag’s MES Digitization solution monitors KPI’s to enable production of a consistent, predictable and quality assured product. It provides traceability from intake to finished goods incorporating a paperless pactory to digitise the plant floor.

Ever.Ag’s cheese yield optimisation module is designed to increase revenue margins. It is powered by AI/machine learning to provide a predictive model to improve outputs – for example, more cheese and better quality. Both measures increase revenue and margin by 1% to 3%. John Tobin will be speaking at 11:00am on 27 June in the seminars. Don’t miss it!
