Top 10 Beverage Tech Companies - 2020

From connected breweries to robots that help harvest grapes for wine are driven by artificial intelligence in the beverage tech industry. These smart technologies are pushing drinks into a renewed digital age. However, the fast track evolution of technologies has proven difficult to track as many innovations occur on a daily basis. Until now, 2020 has also proven to be no different, as innovation, fresh thinking, and new tastes and trends are constantly emerging from the dynamic beverage industry.

Due to the increasing demand for richer quality of wines and beers with new flavors, innovators in the industry are exposed to a new space for creating beverage magic. Industry leaders are focused on both production costs, enhanced safety along with automation technologies, and end of the line delivery of beverage to the customers. One major company has created a machine that pours the same amount of beer every single time. Other companies secure their supply chain with smart sensors to enhance traceability and quality maintenance.

Like the wine itself, the technologies adopted in the beverage industries are growing stronger with every innovation. May it be robotics in vineyards harvesting or IoT-based sensors maintaining the health and quality of canned wines, technology has permeated into the sector to fill the gaps. As countless innovations are adopted in each area of the beverage industry, companies are lost in the ocean of new brewing and winery technologies.
