What is Reebo
Reebo is the 1st innovative 3D food printer designed as a
With a touch of a button, serves ready-to-eat fresh food, anytime, anywhere, in matter of 1-3 minutes.
Prints ready-to-eat, personalized food products, as multilayer food printing, made of meat, vegetables, fruit, nuts but also alternative protein and veggie, to which consumers can choose ingredients, control calories & much more.
We target 3 segments while developing Reebo: food technology, social impact and sustainability.
3D printing is an ideal technology for food manufacturing because it can produce 3D constructs in various food formulas and diverse tastes so that it can cover multiple end-consumers' options thus enhance nutrition and realistic flavours.
”Food inks” can be formulated with extremely high precision to create foods with specific nutrient content for individual needs. From the social impact and sustainability point of view, Reebo supports United Nations` SDG 2 – End hunger by enabling interventions to provide food for masses in areas affected by poverty, hunger, natural disasters, wars, pandemics and many other similar special situations; SDG 3 - Good health and wellbeing by addressing the nutritional needs of modern man; SDG 12 - Responsible consumption and production by smart use of raw materials and reduce energy.
Everything is air-proof, the human contact with the cartridges’ content is made only in controlled environment thus lowering the risk of biological contamination.
Food is a major global issue
Numerous concerns include food quality, nutritional value, climate change, environmental
impacts and global dynamic changes and challenges.
A third of all the food produced ends up as waste because of inefficient use. 88 million tones are generated annually, in the E.U. alone.
Food industry is in a continuous search of finding the most efficient and reliable technologies in order to ensure sustainable food production systems and address an up-growing world population.
An additional very important area of application of the Reebo innovation is to provide nutritious food for large populations, for example, in areas affected by natural or man-made crisis. Post-disaster times are notably fraught with issues in getting food to residents, especially for those living in rural areas that are hard to get to with supplies. Various food-based inks with adequate nutrients and flavours can be deployed where needed and the food assembly will take place onsite. Since the food cartridges are smaller, more stable nutritionally, and easier to ship than traditional food aid, Reebo technology can be a real game-changer. With the ease in customization, user-specific meals could cater not just to health but to all the details of one individual, from age and caloric needs to particular dietary needs according to health issues or allergies.
The NEW Star Trek of Food
Reebo opens new horizons in food industry that were not possible before, through innovative,
revolutionary technology that takes food printing at a whole new level.
3D food printing technology can be a big part of the solution because it has the potential to revolutionize 21st century food industry.
It succeeded in the automotive, aeronautical, medical, even fashion industries and its possibilities are only beginning to emerge.
Reebo applies its own 3D food technology – automatic, interchangeable, multiple injection heads that works with ”food inks” to produce ready-to-eat, personalized food products in vending machines system that can be placed anywhere.
The sci-fi food of today will be the normal food of tomorrow.
3D PRINTING IS A FUTURE EFFICIENT SOLUTION IN FOOD INDUSTRY
Technology is developing with the speed of light but no matter what future will bring us, food is vital for all of us. Tomorrow`s food will not be the same as today due to the machines ability to deliver goods quickly, making it an extremely convenient option for consumers due to hectic lifestyle.
From flying cars up to the robots with emotions, everything will be in a touch of a button. Our project, Reebo, is part of this big picture of the future. It is not about making conventional food, it is about exploring new food options that were not possible to make before and respond on time in front of the changes and challenges that come with the growth of global population, food quality and new technologies.
