Roti by Rote
Bengaluru-based Mukunda Foods, a kitchen robotics company, noticed the lags in the food segment and came up with the idea of creating automated machines to make up for incompetence in our kitchens. Founded in 2012 by engineer duo Eshwar K Vikas and Sudeep Sabat, the company took cues from the analogy of coffee dispensing machines and developed products like Dosamatic and Doughbot, priced at around `2 lakh each, to make the task of creating perfect dosas and rotis relatively easy, efficient, convenient, and less of a hassle.
“Due to the change in consumption patterns, cloud kitchens and quick service restaurants are set to become mainstream, and, therefore, kitchen automation will be the next big thing in the segment. Our focus now is to increase awareness and work more towards identifying pain points in the process of food creation and delivery among brands, and develop customised automation accordingly,” says Prateeksha Rawat, head of marketing at the company.
