The rise of AI
Until recently, AI was seen as a groundbreaking technology with boundless potential. Over the past six months, we have witnessed a monumental shift. AI has become part of every aspect of our daily existence, establishing itself as commonplace technology in every home. I must admit, when ChatGPT emerged, we were intrigued by the concept and realized that it could be a complex task as there was no comparative model available. The commoditization of AI insights posed an opportunity for us to get it right the first time and set the standard.
Challenges for established businesses
Like many other nimble startups, we shared common challenges. Established businesses, boasting centuries of experience, faced identical uncertainties. How would they overcome this unknown situation? A situation where AI had permeated every aspect of life. On closer examination, it became clear that there was an urgent and undeniable need for domain-specific technology, specially designed to cater to the distinct requirements, constraints, safety measures, and privacy concerns of diverse industries.
Domain-specific technology for the food and beverage industry
At Tastewise, we understood and continue to understand the need for food and beverage specific technology. We recognized and acknowledged the pressing need for traditional institutions to have a solution that not only harnesses the immense power of AI but also takes into consideration the complexities of their enterprises.

Realizing the impact
The food and beverage industry is already experiencing the immense impact of domain-specific AI technology. It empowers businesses to optimize operations, speed up product development, revolutionize marketing strategies, and cultivate meaningful connections with consumers. By harnessing the power of personalized creativity and content, brands have the ability to deliver impactful messages that deeply resonate with their target audience.
