Key Features

Features 

Recipe and menu design

Recipes and menus are developed using precise ingredient, nutrition, allergy, seasonal and cost data, which is updated automatically from integrated product data banks. With this data, recipes and menus are designed to comply with specific service criteria such as nutritional recommendations or special dietary needs, removing the stress of managing large food service portfolios.

Ordering

Aromi’s customer-based webshop interface enables convenient ordering of food products and services from different outlets. Order information, including last minute changes, is automatically delivered to the preparing kitchen and invoicing systems. Handling product and service orders is flexible and reliable.

Ingredient purchasing

Aromi enables the effective purchasing and receipt of food products, digitalizing procurement processes and integrating them with other related systems, such as invoicing. It also checks delivered purchases for quality, quantity and price.

Food production

Aromi manages all processes related to food production, including production planning and execution, distribution and storage, and customer group and seasonal planning, while also minimizing waste through historical waste information and pre-ordering. It also ensures quality and cost-efficiency through optimized equipment and personnel scheduling. Centralized planning helps produce menus for individual locations and all details from orders, including special diets, are aggregated into a single weekly dashboard.

Delivery and consumption

Aromi manages the process for distributing meals to separate locations. Diners can view an online menu to see in advance what kind of meal they will enjoy.

Food waste management

Food service operators can effectively manage their accumulated food waste based on real-time data. This helps not only to reduce food waste and costs, but also CO2 emissions.

Benefits

The model automates manual tasks throughout the entire end-to-end food service life cycle, streamlines reporting and supports data-driven decision-making.

Diner experience

Nutritional, allergy and other dietary factors can be applied easily in designing recipes with Aromi. In addition, accurate and real-time information on nutritional facts and meal ingredients can be communicated to diners via modern channels, ensuring food safety and transparency.

Environmental awareness

Aromi helps food service providers minimize CO2 emissions at all stages of food service production by forecasting consumption to control food waste and supporting the use of ecological products in recipe design.
