The Lempert Report
June 17, 2019

It’s called ArticulAte and focuses on all things robots, from the technology itself to business and regulatory issues surrounding it.

The Spoon​​​​​​ says that when you stop and look around the food industry, whether it’s new restaurants embracing automation or companies changing the way we get our groceries, it’s easy to see why the food robotics market is projected to be a $3.1 billion market by 2025.

But there’s no one way to make a robot, and so to give you a sense of who’s who in this space, and to celebrate the start of ArticulAte, The Spoon’s editors put together this market map of the food robotics landscape.
