Upprinting food              
Upprinting Food is focused on 3D printing food from residual food flows. We enable restaurants to 3D print their own food in personalized shapes, which we make in co-creation with the chefs. Furthermore, we help chefs with easy recipes based on e.g. old bread, fruit, vegetables, to reduce food-waste in their restaurant and to create a beautiful dining experience for their guests. This way, they not only reduce their own residuals, they also inspire their guest to be more creative with the food products which they often throw away.
