Robots bringing changes to food tech
“Food tech” is a newly introduced word which refers to the collaboration of the food industry and cutting-edge technologies. And robots have received guests at restaurants and provided various services including making and delivering food. There is a cafe located in Seoul and it has specialized in providing matcha drinks. The cafe has recently enjoyed a lot of popularity among consumers who prefer healthy beverages. Diversified matcha drinks are made based on whisking, which is a process that can be done only by skilled masters. The robot starts to make a matcha drink by using a small broom-shaped tool. And the robot rinses the tool in water after making the drink. A human and a robot had a match and it took only 20 seconds for a robot to finish the whisking process. And it has increased the convenience and efficiency of the cafe. Moreover, a chef robot was introduced to a family restaurant. When customers put the ingredients they want in a bowl, a robot boils the noodles and ingredients together. And it finishes cooking by pouring the soup into the bowl. And within one minute, the robot can make a bowl of noodles without any trouble. Along with the implementation of robots, food tech has been closely connected with people’s daily lives. We introduce food tech robots which can replace sophisticated and simple works of humans.
Livestock industry has emerged as a promising field as it provides staple food to humans. However, there’s been growing concerns over the bad odor and recurrence of animal diseases. And inter-pure has developed Mastana, which is eco-friendly functional water. According to the company, most of the products that can remove odors contain microorganisms. However, Mastana is made with minerals. Mastana can be simply diluted with water that farm animals drink, or they can be sprayed to the spaces with bad odor. The product has been provided to a lot of livestock farms. And aside from the removal of bad odor, it has improved the quality of meat and accelerated the growth of animals. So it has contributed to increasing the income of livestock farms. The company established a subsidiary company, inter-pure system and it has provided a system that can analyze the problems facing the livestock farms more systematically. It is an ICT-based system, MaRO, which means Monitor and Reduce Odor. By building a smart environmental monitoring system that can monitor the pens in real time, the data and statistics can be checked more conveniently with a smartphone application. We look into inter-pure, which has accelerated the development of new products and built an eco-friendly culture under the vision of bringing changes to the world by making innovative attempts.
Environment-friendly consumption has emerged as a popular trend, so it has become essential to use nature-friendly daily supplies. As consumers have shown great interest in environmental protection, a growing number of consumers have used tumbler or mug instead of plastic cups. Also, the number of eco-friendly products has increased. JVR is a maker of eco-friendly stainless steel items that have reflected the needs of consumers and increased their satisfaction level. Stainless steel tumblers, water bottles and mugs of the company can maintain heat and they can be used hygienically and semi-permanently. Euro Mug, which is a main item produced by the company, is made with a high-quality stainless steel material, so it is light and unbreakable. And even infants can use the products more safely. Also, in case of Water Pot, it is made with a single process, which applies hydraulic pressure, so it doesn’t have welding marks and it is more durable than other products that have welding marks. Moreover, all parts of the product including the caps can be separated easily, so it can be washed more conveniently.
