“At Yummly, our vision is to become the ultimate kitchen tool. After extensive research and development efforts, we determined that the best way to expand our offering is to provide tools for on-the-go grocery shoppers,” said Brian Witlin, head of mobile and platform at Yummly. “Now, with the Yummly iOS app, we not only provide recipe inspiration, we help people carry their recipes wherever they go and take action at the supermarket with an intuitive and intelligent shopping list. With our extreme focus on design and user experience, we hope to provide the most visually engaging and useful application for home cooks.”
Yummly utilizes its proprietary food genome & technology to understand recipes, ingredients and products creating ‘Big Data for Food’. This technology powers Yummly’s semantic search, personalized recipe recommendations, developer API’s, and now it’s mobile applications.
“We’re able to turn unstructured data into structured concepts that allow us to analyze recipes, ingredients and products in ways that have never been done before,” said Vadim Geshel, Co-founder and CTO. “Everything we do from calculating the nutrition of a recipe to identifying the taste, course, cuisine, diets, allergies, holidays, techniques and more is done algorithmically by analyzing massive data sets. We’ve made food data actionable in ways we could only have dreamed of.”
With nearly 50% of Yummly traffic coming from mobile devices, Yummly will continue to explore efforts to broaden their mobile offering for it’s community of over 10 million monthly unique visitors.
