Robotics Has Transformed Many Industries – Is The Food Industry Next?

Blendid

By Faith Ashmore, Benzinga Interested in investing in Blendid’s campaign? Click here to get started. It’s almost impossible to miss how food prices have been rising in the past year due to inflation. Fuel prices have soared, and the cost of common goods like eggs has risen by up to 60%. In addition, geopolitical conflicts like the war in Ukraine are increasing global instability and affecting food supply chains – impacting markets globally. One solution that industry leaders and analysts have identified lies in the expansion of the global food service robotics industry. Looking to technology during times of crisis is not a new trend. The automotive industry has been aided significantly by robotics teams to help automate assembly lines and cut down costs, especially amid recessions. Robots are found in almost every part of a car plant, and it’s estimated that by 2025 as much as 75% of vehicles will ride on robot production lines. Manufacturing in general has been absolutely transformed by robotics, helping manufacturers achieve peak efficiency and productivity. The food industry is no different, but it requires innovative approaches to fully leverage the advantages of robotics. Technology and innovation are crucial to the modern food service industry. Not only does technology help companies lower operating costs but it also expands access to fresh food in more locations. While robotics in food service is still in its relative infancy, the increasing ingredient and labor cost challenges are accelerating their growth to help transform the food service industry as it did manufacturing – and companies like Blendid are leading the charge. Blendid, a robotic and AI-enabled food automation solution company, has seen firsthand the success of a fully autonomous robotic kiosk for smoothies. Their kiosks operate in universities, travel centers, retail stores, and hospitals across the country. The kiosks can operate 24/7, which gives consumers access to healthy and affordable food around the clock while the company is able to maintain low operational costs. The company has seen a 267% revenue increase year-over-year which is unsurprising given the consumer demand for healthy and sustainable food. Not only is the kiosk model contactless, but being open 24/7 increases the accessibility of healthy food. For college students or late-night workers, who typically have limited access to healthier foods, Blendid is changing the landscape of food justice. If projections are to be believed, the food robotics industry is only going to continue to grow. The global market for food robotics was estimated at $2.1 billion in 2022, and the market is projected to reach $4B by 2026. Companies like Blendid will be instrumental in the industry by providing unique experiences and options for consumers on the go. Blendid is currently hosting a raise to further expand its ingenious concept. The company is currently working on expanding to 10 additional geographies in the near future and has 500+ kiosks in contract. Previously, they raised more than $26 million which translated into significant revenue growth. It is clear that the consumer demand is there for the smoothie kiosk model and it’ll be interesting to see how Blendid will continue to be an industry leader. Interested in investing and being a part of their growth story? Click here to read more about Blendid’s raise and how to invest! This article was originally published on Benzinga here. Sunnyvale-based Blendid is revolutionizing the future of food service with its proprietary food automation platform (foodOS™), which efficiently and safely prepares and serves a range of healthy, fresh, and delicious food. A pioneer of the future of food service, Blendid's first concept in the market is an autonomous, contactless kiosk that uses robotics, machine vision, artificial intelligence, and healthy ingredients to create delicious smoothies that are customized to meet the unique health and dietary preferences of each consumer. Founded in 2015 by seasoned Silicon Valley entrepreneurs Vipin Jain, Venki Avalur, and Vijay Dodd, Blendid is improving the consumer experience by offering safe, cost-effective, and personalized food on-demand, while also reducing complexities and costs for the operators. Blendid has raised more $20M to date from a mix of venture and crowdfunding investors and is currently raising its Series B investment round.

Yerba Maté Market Brewing Up a Storm with Fresh Investments

MarketJar

Energy drinks have always dominated the functional beverage market, but as consumers seek out healthier and safer options, yerba maté has emerged as a major contender. Yerba maté is a caffeinated tea made from the leaves of a plant found in the South American rainforest that provides a natural source of energy and antioxidants. The drink has been widely consumed across South America for hundreds of years and although it was introduced in 1900 in the US, the drink has only gained popularity in recent years. Now, the North America yerba mate market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% from 2022 to 2029. In 2021, the Coca-Cola Company’s Honest Tea launched a line of yerba maté drinks, while Perrier created its “Energize” line featuring yerba maté. The industry has also seen California-based organic beverage company Guayaki Yerba Maté take off. Guayaki brought on former Red Bull CEO Stefan Kozak to lead the company in 2021 and generated over $100 million in sales that same year. The company, which has already garnered over $100 million in previous venture-backed funding rounds, just raised $75 million in a funding round as per a January SEC filing offering $143 million in shares, with about $68 million remaining. Guayakí is not the only player in the yerba maté space. GURU Organic Energy, which was founded back in 1999, is a Canadian organic energy drink brand that includes yerba maté. GURU just reported its full-year 2022 financial results, ending the year in a strong financial position with over $56 million in cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments and unused credit facilities, reflecting prudent balance sheet management. Another company that is making waves in the space is Yerbaé Brands Corp. ( TSXV:YERB.U ). Yerbaé, which was founded in 2017 by former Monster Energy executive Todd Gibson and Karrie Gibson, a Recycling industry pioneer, just entered the public markets on February 13 following a business combination with Kona Bay Technologies. The company has garnered over $23 million in lifetime sales through 6/30/2022. The company just announced that its January 2023 sales grew by 227% compared to January 2022. Yerbaé Brands has continued to increase its brand presence and is now available at 10,000 locations including major retailers like Costco, Sprouts Farmers Market, Safeway, Acme, Albertsons, Shaws, Jewel, Stop N Shop, Winco, and many more. The company has also made several significant marketing investments to reach new consumers and retain existing customers, introducing the brand to CrossFit community and signing Annie Thorisdottir, the first woman to win the CrossFit Games twice and retaining NYSE-listed Vistar as its distribution partner and investor. Vistar is an industry leading vending and pantry service provider which has used its relations with major pantry outlets in office retailers, schools, and vending to introduce Yerbaé products to consumers in the workplace. Yerbaé Brands has been recognized for its commitment to sustainability, which aligns with the values of many consumers, who are increasingly seeking out environmentally friendly products. The company uses 100% recyclable aluminum cans and has donated over 100,000 meals to Feeding America and supports individuals with intellectual & physical disabilities in fitness.

Comcast Plans Major Network Expansion in Texas

Comcast Houston

Comcast announced today it will significantly expand its next-generation network, the Xfinity 10G Network, in a major way across several southeast Texas counties in 2023. The media and technology company said it will invest more than $100 million to install at least one thousand miles of new fiber-rich highways that will reach up to 80,000 homes and businesses by the end of this year. The planned expansions add to Comcast’s ongoing $2.8 billion investment in Texas over the last three years. Network expansion efforts will begin in Kingwood, Pinehurst, Prairie View, Waller, New Caney and Conroe. Construction will continue in other communities that have ongoing network infrastructure builds in the Houston area. Construction has started in Kingwood, which will be the largest expansion of the year; it is expected to be complete by the end of 2023 and will reach nearly 24,000 Kingwood homes and businesses. These locations will have the foundational next-generation network in place to begin deploying DOCSIS 4.0, setting the stage for the introduction of new symmetrical multi-gigabit Internet options. “We will bring our fiber-rich network to twice the number of homes and businesses this year compared to the number we passed last year,” said Ralph Martinez, Senior Regional Vice President of Comcast’s Texas Region. “Southeast Texas’ rural and suburban communities have been growing fast, and we are building out our next-generation Comcast network in tandem with the growth. We will continue to expand to even more rural communities in the next few years.” Once complete, Comcast, the nation’s largest provider of 1.2 Gigabit per second speeds, will give consumers access to reliable and fast Xfinity Internet and Xfinity Mobile service that outperforms its competitors. Comcast engineers have also developed multiple artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies that make the network faster and more reliable while delivering up to 100 Gbps for Comcast Business customers. In addition, Comcast’s next-generation technology provides multiple layers of security that automatically detect and block hundreds of thousands of cyber events every second, and a Smart Network that automates many core network functions and dramatically reduces the number of outages. “Access to reliable internet and telecommunications services is something that we cannot go without in our day-to-day activities,” said Houston Mayor Pro-Tem and Kingwood resident, Dave Martin. “Comcast and their new construction project in Kingwood is a perfect example of a business working to bridge the gap to connect more people to much-needed services while increasing accessibility to much-needed services and their dependability. I appreciate Comcast’s partnership and commitment to District E.” Comcast is also committed to addressing digital equity in communities we serve, through Project UP, the company’s $1 billion dollar commitment to help tens of millions of people connect to the internet and build futures of unlimited possibilities. Last year, Comcast Texas invested more than one million dollars to help local community organizations provide personalized digital skills training, offer workforce development/readiness workshops and other tech education to students, adults, and people with disabilities. The funding also supports ongoing efforts to build awareness about connectivity programs like Internet Essentials and the federal government’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), which offers eligible households up to $30/month credit, or up to $75 for households on tribal lands, for home Internet. Comcast proudly participates in the Affordable Connectivity Program, and offers Internet Essentials Plus, a $29.95/month home Internet service that is effectively free for eligible households, once the ACP credit is applied. Interested customers can visit Xfinity.com/ACP or call 1-800-Xfinity to learn more about this program and find out if they qualify. For more construction details and updates, visit ComcastTexas.com/Expansion. Powered by the Xfinity 10G Network Comcast’s next-generation network and Internet experience are powering homes today and into the future: · Ultimate Capacity: Xfinity customers connect nearly 1 billion devices across the company’s network annually. The Xfinity 10G Network with the next-generation Xfinity gateways deliver the most advanced WiFi technology carrying three times more bandwidth to power streaming, gaming, videoconferencing, and more, simultaneously. · Fastest Internet: 10 million+ Xfinity Internet customers subscribe to gigabit speed products, and Ookla rated Xfinity the fastest Internet provider at the end of 2022*. Symmetrical gig speeds to the first homes are planned for later this year. · Unprecedented Coverage: The latest Xfinity Gateway provides a more reliable connection throughout the home. Customers can get wall-to-wall WiFi coverage with a powerful xFi Pod that extends coverage to hard-to-reach areas, with plans for an offering of increased support for in-home WiFi through a “boost guarantee” later this year. · Most Reliable Connection: Comcast is scaling the nation’s largest and most reliable network – the Xfinity 10G Network – that passes 60 million homes and business and counting. The company plans to launch a new device that is “storm-ready” with cellular and battery backup to help keep customers connected even when the power goes out. · Ultra-Low Latency: The Xfinity 10G Network and the latest xFi Gateway are a powerful combination that deliver ultra-low latency for those moments when response times matter most like video games, a fast-growing category with Xfinity households averaging more than one gaming console per home. For local businesses, Comcast Business offers a suite of connectivity, communications, networking, cybersecurity, wireless, and managed solutions to help organizations of different sizes prepare for what’s next. Powered by the nation’s largest Gig-speed broadband network, and backed by 24/7 customer support, Comcast Business is the nation’s largest cable provider to small and mid-size businesses and one of the leading service providers to the Enterprise market. Comcast Business has been consistently recognized by industry analysts and associations as a leader and innovator, and one of the fastest-growing providers of Ethernet services.

A New Approach to Traffic Safety

YourUpdateTV

Verra Mobility, a leading provider of intelligent mobility technology solutions, recently announced a call to action for drivers to commit to reducing dangerous driving behaviors to tackle the soaring traffic fatality crisis in the U.S. As part of the initiative, Jon Baldwin, the Executive Vice President of Government Solutions at Verra Mobility and Damian Kevitt, the Executive Director of Streets Are For Everyone (SAFE), participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss the crisis on our roads, completing over 35 media interviews over the course of five hours. Here’s what they had to say: A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/DRmQRr5a8UE Traffic fatalities in the United States steadily dropped for decades but climbed during the pandemic's early days, eventually reaching a 16-year high in 2021. The most recent projections from National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) indicate that this deadly trend may have started to level off in 2022. With the first nine months of last year's data suggesting that overall fatalities declined, cyclist and pedestrian fatalities have continued to rise. That means we have more work to do to save lives. For Damian, the issue hits particularly close to home. His life was changed in February of 2013 when he was hit by a car in Los Angeles while bicycling. Lucky to survive, and after losing his right leg, Damian resolved to use his personal tragedy as a way to make streets safer for everyone, with his organization SAFE advocating for actions that will help reduce traffic fatalities to zero. SAFE looks to address the crisis in a holistic fashion through direct education, broad awareness campaigns, partnerships, community outreach, policy and legislation, support for those impacted, and other proven strategies. Verra Mobility will increase its support with new actions including technology, tools, public service materials, and awareness programs along with financial commitments for continued partnerships with organizations like SAFE, the National Coalition for Safer Roads, and Families for Safe Streets, and Transportation Alternatives. The voluntary Zero In pledge asks participants to commit to better driving behaviors like slowing down, watching for pedestrians, looking carefully at busy intersections, and stopping for school buses. This pledge is a way to promote safety and remind us that changing our behavior can lead to safer speeds, safer roads, and safer communities. For more information, visit verramobility.com/zero-in-pledge About Jon Baldwin Jon Baldwin is the EVP of Government Solutions. Prior to joining Verra Mobility, Jon served as President of Fortive’s Gems, Sensors and Controls business, a global supplier of industrial sensors and control components. He also served as the General Manager for Texas Instruments’ Precision Signal Path business unit. Jon also held leadership roles in marketing, business development and strategy for National Semiconductor Corporation, Samplify Systems, Inc. and Analog Devices, Inc. He began his career at Raytheon Technologies as a systems engineer. About Damian Kevitt Damian Kevitt was raised in Los Angeles, CA, and prefers, whenever he can, to get around on his bicycle. He was schooled in the sciences – studying marine biology at UCSB and microbiology at U of A. Damian later became a professional counselor at his church, where he’s worked for well over 25 years counseling and helping both staff and parishioners. His life took a sudden turn in Feb 2013 when he was hit by a car that never stopped while bicycling in Griffith Park. Barely surviving and losing his right leg, Damian got back on his bicycle and started his quest to not only “finish the ride” he was on but also use what happened to him to make the streets safer for all. Currently, Damian leads SAFE’s programs to improve street safety and works at his church with various non-profits to help make Southern California a better place. About Verra Mobility Verra Mobility Corporation is a leading provider of smart mobility technology solutions that make transportation safer, smarter and more connected. The company sits at the center of the mobility ecosystem, bringing together vehicles, hardware, software, data and people to enable safe, efficient solutions for customers globally.

Start the New Year with Cellular Energy Support

YourUpdateTV

For many, the holidays proved difficult for sticking to healthy routines. And it can be even harder to be motivated to prioritize your overall wellness throughout the year. But incorporating a healthy diet, exercise and supplements into your routine may help you work towards sticking to your New Year wellness goals. When your metabolism works optimally, it does a great job of supporting overall wellness. Recently, Dr. Nicole Avena, consultant for Jarrow Formulas, conducted a satellite media tour to share insights on how to support cellular energy production and gave tips on how to evaluate your daily nutrition and balance your diets with supplements such as vitamin B12. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/f7VxR7tOVSQ Ideally, we would all absorb optimal amounts of nutrients through a well-balanced diet – but this can be difficult to achieve. To support immune health, it’s important to evaluate daily nutrition and balance our diets with efficacious, scientifically based supplements. The Methyl B-12 from Jarrow Formulas, for example, is naturally recognized by your body, so it is delivered to your cells more effectively than a non-methyl B12 – all to support energy production at the cellular level.* Even more, Jarrow Formula’s Methyl B-12 is the perfect complement to a plant-based diet as it provides the same form of B12 found in animal-based food, and in a vegan chewable tablet. Methyl B-12 is a water-soluble vitamin and is the metabolically active and bioavailable form of vitamin B12 that helps support brain and nerve health, cellular energy production and sleep.* Together with folic acid, it also helps to reduce homocysteine levels to support good health.* Jarrow Formulas Methyl B12 is a vitamin supplement especially useful for vegetarians and people over 50 to help support adequate vitamin B12 levels. However, adequate Methyl B-12 status over the whole lifecycle is needed for optimal health. The suggested usage of our Methyl B-12 is to dissolve in mouth or chew 1 tablet per day or as directed by your qualified healthcare professional. Risk Factors for Vitamin B12 Deficiency Advancing age and diet are the primary risk factors for low vitamin B12 levels. It is recommended that people over 50 consider supplements and vitamin B12-fortified foods. Indeed, up to 40 percent of older individuals may have reduced stomach acid, which impairs absorption of vitamin B12.* Diet is a major risk factor for inadequate vitamin B12 levels. The best sources of vitamin B12 are animal products, such as meat, eggs, and fish. Therefore, strict vegetarians (those who eat no animal products) are at considerable risk. Jarrow Formulas has been carefully crafting vitamins, minerals and supplements since 1977. Informed by strong scientific research, Jarrow Formulas’ products have the potential to support and promote optimal health.

About Dr. Nicole Avena Dr. Nicole Avena is a research neuroscientist and a pioneer in the field of food addiction. Her seminal research work jump-started a new field of exploration in medicine and nutrition. She is an expert in diet during pregnancy and baby, toddler and childhood nutrition. Dr. Avena received a Ph.D. in Neuroscience and Psychology from Princeton University, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship in molecular biology at The Rockefeller University in New York City.

Anxiety is overwhelming for Millenials and Gen Z, with over 50% of those under 35 reporting dealing with crippling stress levels daily.

The drinks, which were developed by a team of University of California Los Angeles-trained (UCLA) neuroscientists, have been shown by EEG brainwave analyses and third party clinicals studies to promote healthy brain functions like improved memory, verbal fluency, and alpha brain activity. TruBrain was also recently rated the best nootropics for dealing with stress and anxiety.

Introducing MicroGuard™ by Microban®: antimicrobial technology for PU, EVA and PVC products

Microban International

Microban International is pleased to expand its portfolio of antimicrobial technologies with the introduction of MicroGuard ™, a series of antifungal additives for PVC, PU, and EVA applications including foam. MicroGuard technology provides high antifungal efficacy and 24/7 built-in protection, preventing microbial degradation to extend the useful product lifetime. This innovative solution from the global leader in antimicrobials is part of Microban’s commitment to bringing novel technologies to market with more friendly toxicity profiles than currently available agents. MicroGuard has been developed as a non-leaching antifungal agent comprised of active ingredients that are free from metals, offering an alternative to arsenic-based OBPA – a common antifungal additive – that is causing regulatory concerns due to its ability to contaminate water sources and harm aquatic life. Michael Ruby, President at Microban International, commented: “We are pleased to introduce MicroGuard, a metal-free technology designed to combat fungal growth on PVC products, as well as on PU and EVA foams. MicroGuard’s more favourable toxicity profile is ahead of the curve in terms of shifts in the regulatory landscape concerning built-in antifungals for these goods, offering manufacturers a highly effective built-in solution to increase product durability.” MicroGuard can be seamlessly integrated into PVC, PU and EVA products at the point of manufacture, and has been designed for use in a broad range of applications. The technology can be incorporated into outdoor PVC products – roofing membranes, tarpaulin, awnings and decking – and used to treat goods manufactured from PU and EVA foams, including shoe soles, furniture cushions and mattresses. Dr Souvik Nandi, Vice President of Technology and Innovations at Microban International, added: “MicroGuard has been carefully developed using our extensive in-house expertise to meet the diverse needs of PU, EVA and PVC manufacturers. Available in both pellet and liquid formulations, MicroGuard has global registration to offer manufacturers confidence in treating their polymer products.” The technology is available to brands and manufacturers globally, along with Microban’s support and expertise.
