Food and Beverage Production
The food beverage and industry has changed dramatically in a very short time. Frozen foods, for example, were a novelty in the early 1950s. Now, millions of homes in the United States use frozen foods in some form. Many products that formerly could only be processed by hand can now be completely processed by automated equipment, so it is possible for products to be harvested, processed, and packaged without ever being touched by human hands.
