Dec. 29, 2021

Europe’s leading route-based vending and coffee service provider has extended its existing partnership with Switzerland-based food tech company, Carogusto. Selecta Group, also headquartered in Switzerland, said Carogusto's hot steam food solutions will now be available in all 16 European countries in which it operates.

Selecta’s Carogusto offerings through its Foodies brand include hot-steamed meals that are ready to serve in just 30 to 45 seconds at the push of a button. Carogusto's "SiSiSi Qeamer" concept and QR scan technology enable machines to automatically recognize individual meals and adjusts the heating accordingly.

Selecta and Carogusto are working with chefs from renowned restaurants across Europe to create new dishes on a continuous basis to ensure sufficient rotation and options such as seasonal dishes, local heroes and on-trend creations. These include gluten-free, lactose-free and vegan options.

“Selecta is excited to work with such an innovative partner as Carogusto, who shares our vision of offering exciting, healthier more flexible meal options,” says Selecta chief executive Christian Schmitz. “In times where hybrid working models have become the 'new norm,' Foodies from Selecta delivers a premium hot food experience, 24x7, while maximizing business continuity."
