byFlow showcases its latest patented innovation at The World's 50 Best Restaurants Awards

Today, after 7 years of development of innovative 3D Printing Technology for (personalised) Food, byFlow, leader in its field, announces a showcase of its newest patented technology. At The World's 50 Best Restaurants Awards 2021 in the ZOO Antwerp, the hottest live event in the culinary world of this fall, byFlow will demonstrate (personalised) 3D Chocolate Printing as the first implementation of its new technology.

In the past years, digital Food has gone through rapidly emerging stages. Both startups and Food Multinationals have embraced the developments of this new method of producing (personalised) Food. byFlow, since its launch in 2015, has established a global installed base of 3D Food Printing Technology at Food- and R&D Professionals, becoming a global leader in bringing practical and applicable solutions to the market. After successfully launching multiple innovations, like the Focus 3D Food Printer and online Design-platform byFlow Studio, the time has come for something new.

“We first and foremost listened and observed the market. An important conclusion was that a lot of interest from our customers in 3D Food Printing Technology has been on (personalised) chocolate printing”- explains CTO & Co-Founder of byFlow, Floris Hoff. “We found out that this ingredient is one of the hardest to print with, since it is reliant to a precise tempering- and cooling process. At the same time, it is an exciting ingredient to combine with 3D Printing since the characteristics of the ingredient make almost any 3D Shape possible. I am excited to demonstrate that with our team of engineers, we succeeded in developing a technology that is capable of printing with the most complex ingredients, while at the same time delivering a system that anyone could use, anytime” – Floris adds.  

“We are pleased to be invited to present our latest developments which we have worked on for years, to the best Chefs in the world during The World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards in the ZOO of Antwerp”- says Nina Hoff, CEO & Co-Founder of byFlow. “And we very much look forward to establishing new partnerships with Food Experts to further shape the Future of Food” – she adds.        

This is just the beginning. It is in byFlow’s DNA to continuously research and develop 3D Printing Technology for (personalised) Food and with this latest innovation it is already accelerating various applications for the future. Building on its global customer base and experience as a technology leader, byFlow has already granted its patent in Europe, with America expected later this year.
