Anrich3D is developing a system of 3D printers that can print personalised, nutritious and aesthetic food offerings depending on the customers’ desires. The printers will be able to customise bite-sized pieces of food—‘foodlets’—to ensure that every bite is perfect. The software analyses data from dietary apps as well as wearables and medical records to produce a tailored food solution for each unique customer.

With technology like this, the future of fast-food looks promising. Hopefully, with the speed and ease that this machine allows people access to healthy food, there will be an increase in healthy diets. Anrich3D’s printer can even deliver healthy food to kids in the shape of their favourite characters, for instance, making the next family meal out a breeze. The printer can also help reduce food waste and streamline the supply chain from farm to plate.
