As governments across the globe had prohibited restaurants from accepting dine-in customers, there was expansion in the food delivery industry.  

F&B products have vast information, such as shifting customer preference, consumer test results, experimental test findings, commercial performance, and an abundance of delivery apps. Machine learning gleans insights that can help enhance customer experience and subsequently increase the business’s market share.
