By Chris Dickson – BBC NewsFood safety issues were one of the biggest concerns for consumers and consumers’ organisations, as food and drink companies looked to 3D-print food in order to meet demand for more expensive ingredients.
But a new technology could change all that.
The world’s largest food and beverage company, Coca-Cola, is looking to 3-D print food and beverages to satisfy its growing taste for food that is made by hand, instead of by a machine.
The Coca-Cola Company’s new line of 3D printers are able to print food with the precision of hand-held machines.
This technology could also be used to print drinks that were traditionally made by machines such as Coca-cola’s Kool-Aid machines, but which could be made more cheaply by using 3D printing technology.
The company’s CEO, Paul Colville, told the BBC that the company was looking to “build a new future of food, which will be more accessible and more sustainable”.
“With 3D manufacturing, it’s about bringing that quality back to what you want to eat,” he said.
“We can use the printing technology of 3-d printing to create foods and drinks that are actually made by human hands.”
It’s the first time we’ve been able to use a 3D printer in a food process.
We’ve used the printing process of a 3-dimensional printer in many other processes, but this is the first use where it’s a true, natural process that we’re using.””
We want to make a new kind of food that’s just as nutritious and as delicious as the old stuff, and that’s going to be possible with the use of 3d printing technology.
“The Coca Cola 3D Printing Co-op, which is based in Oxfordshire, is the world’s first 3D printed food company and is working with major food and drinks manufacturers to deliver the product in the UK.
The firm has been working with many food manufacturers in Europe to build up a large supply chain for its 3D printable food products.”
We know that there’s a need for food products that are easier to make at home, which have the same quality as the real thing,” Mr Colville said.”
Our business model is to be able to do what we’re doing, but also to provide the right products at the right price.
“Mr Colville was speaking at the launch of the new line at a ceremony in Oxford.”
People need to be aware that they are going to have to look at the ingredients in the food that they eat.
The food that you put in your mouth is not the same as the food you get out of the machine,” he explained.”
This new food product, it will be printed on the same 3D process that the real food that people eat comes from.””
That’s where the technology will be able make a difference to the way we make food.
“Coca-Cola has been experimenting with a range of 3DR printers, with a particular focus on food manufacturing.
Mr Colridge explained that a new type of printer would allow the company to “print on the 3D scale of the real world” and produce foods with more precision.”
The process for making food in a factory, that’s been around for many years, has always been very, very expensive,” he told the audience.”
But what you’ve got to do now is, the 3-DS printer will enable us to make our food more affordable and more environmentally friendly.””
It’s the easiest way of making food and it will make our life easier.””
With 3-ds printing, it is now possible to make food that comes from an open, local source.
It’s the easiest way of making food and it will make our life easier.”
Coke plans to use 3D prints to print all of its foods by 2021, with the aim of offering all food products on shelves by 2021.
The company is already experimenting with 3-Ds printing its own beverages, with plans to print a range that will be available in 2022.
This will be followed by a launch of a range called “the new world”, which will feature a range with “the freshest ingredients”.
“We’re working with a number of food companies in Europe, the United States and other countries, to make this a reality,” Mr Collins said.
Coca Cola has also been looking at ways to meet its sustainability goals, with Mr Colland saying that “we want to create a future that is more sustainable and that has the right ingredients for the way that we want to live our lives”.
The company has already signed a new deal with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to use the 3DR printer to produce the beverages that it sells in the United Kingdom.”Coca
