Hughes Equipment Company White Paper Shows Best Practices for Food Processors to Deal with Water Shortages

Columbus, Wis., June 2, 2105 — Access to fresh water is being challenged unlike any time in modern history – an issue that not only affects individuals but, also, the food processing industry, which is facing new demands to produce more food while using water more efficiently.

water challenges to food processorsNow more than ever, food growers and processors need to prepare for shifting market pressure and enhanced sustainability best practices, including water-saving equipment and processes, to ensure continued productivity, efficiency and profitability, according to a Hughes Equipment Company white paper that looks at the impacts of water challenges on agriculture and food processing.

“To stay a step ahead of evolving sustainability challenges, food processors need access to water conservation solutions that are innovative and designed to protect the bottom line,” according to Ross Lund, president Hughes Equipment Company, a food processing equipment manufacturer with installations worldwide. “Partnering with knowledgeable experts can help you anticipate market pressure and design sustainability best practices, including water-saving equipment and processes, to ensure continued productivity, profitability and sustainability.”

The white paper looks at best practices food processors can engage to more efficiently use water and handle wastewater. The paper also notes increasing stresses on water resources throughout the world.

“Climate change, rising populations and increased demands for foods that require more water to process are all increasing the threat to our global water resources,” said Dr. David Garman, dean of the School of Freshwater Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. “Drought conditions are also shifting the agriculture infrastructure. As growers and processors move operations to more water-rich regions, these industry shifts will create new challenges for the many stakeholders affected, especially those in agriculture and the food processing industry.”
