Background to the Collaboration
Ajinomoto launched the program in December 2020 to become a "company that solves food and health issues.TechMagic Selected for Ajinomoto Group Accelerator ProgramThe first time the company was founded, it was in the process of being reorganized into a new company.
Since then, TechMagic hasDevelopment of cooking robots to create the future of foodThrough the above program, TechMagic's cooking robot technology and Ajinomoto's seasoning-based technology have been promoted. Through the above program, TechMagic's cooking robot technology and Ajinomoto's seasoning-basedCollaboration and utilization of "Taste Design TechnologyThe two parties agreed to promote the creation of new food value through the development of new products and services, and concluded a basic agreement for collaboration.
Future Prospects for Collaboration
Based on the results of this collaboration, the two companies will begin by jointly developing a cooking robot that can serve a variety of stir-fry menus, including Chinese cuisine.
By combining TechMagic's artificial intelligence machine learning-equipped cooking robots with Ajinomoto Corporation's "deliciousness design technology" solution, we are able to provide a solution that is difficult to implement in high-volume cooking.Responding to the diversifying needs of consumers and solving the challenges of the food service industry, such as labor shortages and food lossI will do so.
In the future, we will tailor our products to individual tastes and nutritional needs.Development of globally deployable cooking robots by enabling personalized cookingThe following is a summary of the results of the project.
We will continue to provide solutions to various issues surrounding the food industry by offering a sophisticated fusion of hardware and software.Creating a sustainable food infrastructure through technologyWe are planning to aim for "the best of both worlds".

Cooking Robot Business
We automate a series of cooking processes in the kitchens of major restaurant chains by highly integrating both hardware and software technologies. While maintaining the taste of the food and the quality of the hospitality, the system increases store productivity by reducing labor costs associated with the cooking process. This compact and highly efficient product can be installed in existing stores to reduce labor costs by one staff member, rather than reducing operations. The system can be adapted to a wide range of cooking methods and serving processes according to the customer's needs.
Business Robotics Business
Robots automate simple tasks that occur in central kitchens and food factories, such as sorting dishes after washing and serving food containing irregular shapes. This not only reduces workload and labor costs, but also maximizes the overall throughput of the facility and contributes to higher productivity.
