Our technology

Wellio is the first intelligence platform that helps people plan, shop, prepare and enjoy healthy meals at home. It’s a platform that will learn to be your personal chef, shopper and nutritionist all in one. The platform is human powered and AI assisted.

The challenge

Understanding home chefs

Every home chef has different dietary restrictions, cooking skills and taste preferences to take into account for themselves and their families, our challenge is to offer a personalized food experience taking into account those various needs.

Learning the world of food

There is a great amount of web sources offering unstructured recipes, nutrition information, grocery products and other data, our challenge is to transform this raw data into smart data that can help us understand the art of cooking and the science of nutrition.

Our vision

We are building an intelligent human-centered and data-empowered platform that adapts to each home chef’s goals and needs enabling better nutrition choices and encouraging cooking at home.

Take a look at the journey our Home Chefs go on as they use wellio and how we leverage technology at every step of their journey.
