Solution

The user browses through the categories or tags to find what they want to eat. The app shows them directions on how to create the dish step by step using ingredients which are available in the canteen. Once they choose their meal, directions will appear on their smartphone, or if they are using Augmented Reality glasses, anywhere in the room. The platform will help localise each ingredient and interactive countertops will help with portion adjustments. The platform can be connected to fitness apps, health assistants, etc. providing nutritional values for all of the meals. Many of the ingredients will be precut and prepared mechanically if needed, and the employee’s task will be putting the dish together- this will save time for both the employee and canteen chefs. This will also replace meal-prepping the day before for many employees. The flexibility and freedom of this is especially beneficial, because it reduces queues and the employees are able to „personalise” their dishes themselves.

How does digitization & connectivity create a unique eating experience?

Digitization and connectivity in this concept provides everyone their own personal cooking advisor, who suggests healthy choices. Modern technology acts as a guide, making cooking a breeze for everyone. Connectivity also helps improve employee relations, by sharing the food cultures of fellow co-workers. Digitization may also lead to waste reduction, due to data tracking and weight sensors in the buffet, which may alarm when the ingredients need to be replenished. Furthermore, seasonal produce m

What other amazing features does your concept offer?

The amazing thing about this concept, is that it may be adjusted as needed, depending on the funding, space, even technology which will appear in nine years.

What is the core idea behind your campus food experience?

The main idea of my campus experience is creating an environment, where the workplace is not an obstacle in healthy eating, but an active supporter and subtle teacher. The employees have the freedom to choose whatever they wish, as it is a buffet style canteen, but the recipies recommended in the platform serve towards practicing healthy habits. As technology gets more and more advanced, it is important to remember, that digitalisation should help in adding value to our lives. Food in general, c
