Big data analytics has dynamically changed the way businesses are conducted. It largely eliminates decisions based on gut-feeling and intuition by providing extensive data for driving result-oriented decision making. The food and beverage industry is no exception to this revolution due to the vast applications of big data. Big data analytics can transform the food and beverage industry right from the origin of production to the final delivery to consumers.

Big data analytics can highly optimize the food delivery process by gathering data from various sources including weather, road traffic, temperature, and route. By analyzing data across all points, businesses can estimate the correct delivery time for the food along with optimizing routes to get it quicker to the consumer.
