Disruption in Restaurants Across India - the Only Way to Survive!

In this age of unbridled innovation and unabated pursuit of optimal performance, disruption is the norm in the restaurant business in India. Unless the industry adapts to these disruptions — on multiple fronts — the future seems shaky, to say the least.

With the advent of web-based ordering and use of AI (Artificial Intelligence) and IoT (Internet of Things), digitalization has taken the food industry by storm. Food aggregators have already changed the dynamics of the business.

According to a recently released TechSci Research report, “India Foodtech Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2021", the food-tech market in India is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 12 per cent during 2016 - 2021. Backed by growing internet penetration, increasing smartphone users, a proliferating e-commerce market along with a rising young working population, the food-tech market is in full bloom in the country and beyond.
