GROUP 14 – FOODBAO

 

Description of Product/ Service/ Innovation:

  • We aim to provide home-cooked food to working adults or students who live alone through a mobile application
  • We link customers to cooks within neighborhoods, providing them with healthy and affordable meals quickly and efficiently through a bicycle/eBike delivery (with nominal delivery fee) or a self-collect option (No extra charge)
  • Customers can choose to order meals in advance by selecting a ‘meal ready by’ time, or use the ‘Eat Now’ function to select meals being cooked in the area in real-time
  • Collaboration with culinary institutions and celebrity chefs will also be explored to provide cooking masterclasses to cooks on the app to upgrade their culinary skills
  • The application is linked to the calendar function as a widget
