Foodcast / kitchen appliance


1.3 billion tons of food are wasted every year and more than 40% off the loss happens at retail and consumer levels.
Foodcast analyses the status of the food the user already has and make suggestions on what dish to create. Enabling the user to eat all the food they buy before it literally turns into waste.

Foodcast motivates users to make savings for both the environment and the wallet, and it really shines in social conditions. By gathering multiple users, independent inventories can be combined and both the cooking capabilities and waste saving can be tackled together in a more fun and efficient way.
