Dassault Systèmes and Bel Group, announce a long-term partnership to accelerate the food industry’s transformation toward a sustainable model. The companies will play a role in shaping the future of food by digitalizing the end-to-end value chain powered by artificial intelligence, from product idea to manufacturing and market launch, the companies report.

The challenge of sustainably feeding a global population of 10 billion people in 2050 has propelled the need for  food technologies and disruptive ways of developing and manufacturing healthy and sustainable food in a regulated industry. 

Bel Group will deploy Dassault Systèmes’ “Perfect Production” industry solution experience based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to improve the efficiency and sustainability of its manufacturing operations at 11 plants worldwide. Key elements of this transformation are manufacturing operations management (MOM), food and materials sciences, AI and product lifecycle management (PLM). 

With MOM, Bel Group will continue to advance toward digital transformation, to make its manufacturing more efficient and responsive to market demands while optimizing inventory levels and consumption of raw materials. Bel Group will be able to produce more sustainably, with consistent quality, in any location, the company reports.

With AI, Bel Group can continuously adapt to consumer needs with sustainable development and innovation, by analyzing millions of data points and using machine learning for augmented products and packs, while providing Dassault Systèmes with comprehensive insights into the food industry. This will reduce time to market, optimize formulation, reduce industrial trials, accelerate product development, and increase product performance.

With PLM, one collaborative environment will connect people, processes and data, providing everyone involved with access to the right information, at the right time. This will facilitate transversal collaboration and decision-making—from a product’s ideation to its release on the market—and simplifies business activities.

“Food transition towards a more sustainable model needs disruptive players and actions in the decade to come. Through this unique and long-term partnership, we want to pioneer new solutions and accelerate our transformation. The joint capabilities of our two groups, sharing the same vision, will empower our teams to shift towards ‘augmented R&D’ through AI, and to reshape our manufacturing and product management processes for the future of food,” says Cécile Béliot, CEO of Bel Group.
