In today’s day and time when food is just a tap away, there’s no denying that technology indeed is advancing at a rapid pace in the food space as well. Be it self-ordering kiosks at restaurants or the advanced machinery in the kitchens, there are so many innovations and automation in the F&B space that are transforming it every minute. Not just food delivery or ordering, food has even started to be made with automation. Remember we told you about robot-made pizzas at a restaurant, that have been developed by SpaceX’s former employees? It seems like now it’s time for 3D-printed burgers! Yes, you read that right. A 3D printing technology has been used by an Israel-based firm to create burgers that are plant-based or vegan. Not only are these better for the environment but are also customisable as per the customer's tastes and preferences, isn’t that amazing?

As per reports, the Israel-based company, SavorEat, has become one of the first companies to use 3D printing technology to cook food. They have a 3D printer on-site with three cartridges containing oil and other condiments. So now users can choose how much protein and fat they want in their burgers, post which the machine cooks them up in just about six minutes. Made with a combination of chickpea, potato, and pea protein, the burgers are completely vegan. "It's a mix of innovation of meat alternative and digital manufacturing where we can also cook the product," SavorEat's CEO Racheli Vizman told Reuters. 

There can’t be a better time for the innovation as the demand for plant-based meats such as mock meat and other meat alternatives is rapidly increasing. With a rise in health-conscious consumers who are also trying to do their bit for the environment, seems like the company is all set for the profits. As per Reuters, alternative protein start-ups have raised over 3 billion USD in 2020 already.
