Hypothesis

The difficulties that users with allergies and dietary restrictions face as a cause of their dining experience being inconvenient and unsafe, make them feel as if they are a burden to the people around them, left out of social situations, and only have the option to eat food that they cook at home.

The Problem

People with allergies and restrictions don’t enjoy the dining experience because their current one is inconvenient and unsafe.

Our Goal

Enhance dining experiences for people who are limited due to allergies and dietary restrictions by facilitating technological and practical resources that create a more enjoyable experience.

It's all about the personalized experience
