About the company
In recent years, the food service industry has struggled to hire enough personnel to meet the demands of customers. This tech solutions company aims to utilize new technology to provide solutions for this sector, cutting the large costs that companies in the food industry face, not only for labor but for the cost of things like ingredients as well.

The technology the company produces automates certain processes in the kitchen in order to reduce the need for manual labor. For things like ingredients, the AI Automation Robot automates simple cooking-related tasks in the kitchen.

Currently, they are building a Cooking Robot together with a major restaurant chain in Japan. They will launch this product in 2020. They are developing a robot that uses image recognition to automate certain processes that typically occur in a factory setting.
