Food technology company Savor-Eat is bringing its Robot Chef to the United States market by partnering with global food services and facilities management leader Sodexo.

SavorEat, which is based in Israel, brings customization and sustainability to food services by using artificial intelligence and 3D printing technologies.

Powered by machine learning and AI, the Robot Chef offers restaurants a cohesive production process that reduces waste by cooking personalized patties that only produce the specified amount of plant-based meat needed on demand.

Using its proprietary web application, diners can customize protein and fat compositions, and select cooking preferences to easily craft their plant-based meals.

User preferences are stored in the cloud and sent to the Robot Chef, which autonomously produces a patty within three minutes.

SavorEat will use the Robot Chef to produce plant-based burgers for dining halls at the University of Colorado and the University of Denver.

The University of Denver will provide students with the SavorEat platform this month, with the University of Colorado following suit next year.

Racheli Vizman, CEO and co-founder of SavorEat, said, "By partnering with a legacy company such as Sodexo, which encourages innovation and is at the forefront of adopting food technology to serve students worldwide, SavorEat extends its reach and brings its Robot Chef to the US.

"We are excited to share the deliciousness of food that tastes like real meat (without any animal-based ingredients) with tens of thousands of students. We're proud to partner with Sodexo and could not ask for a better partner with which to mark our debut in the United States."

Moses DeBord, senior vice-president at Sodexo Campus, said, "We are thrilled to partner with a company making waves in the plantbased and food service robotics industry.

"SavorEat's unique mission to bring customizable plant-based solutions perfectly fits our vision to bring a happy and healthy eating experience to college campuses."

Sodexo is ranked as one of the three largest companies in the world in the field of integrated service management and catering for businesses, educational institutions and governments.

On college campuses, Sodexo provides a culinary experience, digital integration for daily engagement, and expertise in cleaning, landscaping and maintenance solutions.
