From Palate to Plate: Defining a Taste Platform

Monday, March 14
11:00AM - 12:00PM

The Driskill
604 Brazos St


What’s for dinner? A question we ask ourselves each day. New technologies have grown the food space into a $1.3 Trillion industry and propelled the creation of new products; answering that question and ultimately changing the way we discover, order, and consume food.

Imagine a restaurant that knows how you like your steak cooked before you sit down or recipes that are recommended to you based on how spicy you prefer your meals. Panelists will share insights into how they are building revolutionary platforms for taste and tailoring products to your taste using data, customer feedback, and new technology.
