The Modern Labor Crisis

Food companies are grappling with an unprecedented labor shortage. Hiring and retaining workers is more challenging than ever, putting the US at risk for food shortages nationwide.

Leveraging automation as a form of labor is necessary to meet demand.

Status quo: manual labor is the only viable option

Food manufacturers have tried traditional automation techniques like multi-head dispensers, vibratory feeds, and volumetric fill dispensers for years.

Nothing is flexible enough to deal with the highly variable nature of food, so companies end up relying on people to carry out tasks by hand.

We believe there’s no future where this work is done by hand. What if there was an alternative?

AI empowers us to take existing hardware and make it intelligent enough to manipulate food

Powered by ChefOS, AI equips Chef's systems with the flexibility needed to handle the highly variable nature of food.
