JJA Pack and Siemens Digital Industries – Revolutionising food processing

21 September 2023

JJA Pack, whose customers include Premier Foods and Cadburys has driven innovation in the food processing industry through the smart application of artificial intelligence (AI) technology. Using Edge technology and Siemens’ Industrial IoT Solution MindSphere, the firm has revolutionised the sector’s approach to machine maintenance.


By leveraging AI capabilities alongside the team’s existing knowledge of liquid moving machinery, JJA Pack has:

  • drastically reduced machine downtime, saving clients millions of pounds in loss of revenue (several days downtime can cost millions).
  • improved customer service through better scheduling for pre-emptive maintenance.
  • offered more service options, such as lifetime maintenance for machines fitted with Edge devices.
  • made innovative AI technology more accessible for a client base of smaller food processing enterprises and machine builders.

The new approach to repair and maintenance has been a game-changer for JJA Pack and marks a major shift in the sector. These techniques will be implemented into all of their build projects going forward.
