Electrolux sponsor at the first Smart Kitchen Summit


The first Smart Kitchen Summit (SKS) took place in Dublin few days ago. Electrolux was a headline sponsor at the global food tech conference that gathered leaders, innovators and startups to explore the latest technology within the food ecosystem and how it can evolve the consumer cooking journey.
The first-ever European Smart Kitchen Summit explored the impact that technology has on the entire food ecosystem: from where and how food is grown to the global problem of food waste, to making cooking good food at home easier and more accessible as well as using data for personalized cooking journeys.
«We are pleased to have been partner with the Smart Kitchen Summit in exploring new ways of simplifying and personalizing the consumer cooking journey through assisted cooking, new services, partnerships and the latest technology within the smart home. By bringing together key players within food, home appliances and tech we can move toward the goal to create an ecosystem where the consumer experience is enhanced by connectivity and digitalization» – said David Cronström, head of strategy and ecosystems at Electrolux.
New technologies, as Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things were also at the center of the discussions, representing significant trends in kitchen appliances. Participants to the summit included all the food sector players: from leaders of some of Europe’s biggest food brands, to appliance manufacturers and some of the most innovative startups across the food and cooking marketplace.
