The DLG regularly publishes surveys on topics from the food industry and food technology.

In 2014, the first DLG Trend Monitor “Robots in the Food and Beverage Industry” was published. Almost ten years have passed since then and much has changed - not only in the food industry. The objective of the Trend Monitor survey was, as always, to obtain an overview of (future) areas of application and developments of robots as well as to compile objectives and reasons for an application of robots in the food industry. A special focus this year was also on the education and training of professionals who handle robots in their everyday work.
