Poland Robots replace dinner ladies

Technology
The first fully automated canteen in Poland is to open in Sky Tower in Wrocław.

The operator Automnia claims that the self service cashless canteen serves nutritious meals, soup and juice. A computer monitors which meal sets it has in stock and estimates how many it will require before automatically ordering new deliveries which normally take place at times when food is not being served. The system, which is produced in Italy, has a refrigeration module, which will keep food chilled for a few days. Food is served after payment by normal credit or debit card or with a special card issued by Benefit Solution Group. A robot then heats the meal and serves it. The system has been installed by Work Service and it is able to cater for up to 100 office workers. It serves both one- and two course meals. Other versions of this system can serve up to 600 different dishes.
