We can all agree that fruit juices are a convenient way to get your daily dose of vitamins, especially for those of us who are on a time-crunch during the work week. But experts have found that it can be just as unhealthy as sugary soft drinks.
But while sugar in fruits is unavoidable, what if we told you that there’s a way to make it worth your while? And that you can enjoy 100% of the fruits’ (or vegetables’) nutrients in a high-quality drink in just 60 seconds without even stepping foot outside the office?
Say hello to Smooder – a Singaporean food tech brand that has introduced a first-of-its-kind smoothie machine and subscription service in Singapore and Southeast Asia. Designed in collaboration with The Innovation Factory @ SIMTech, a partnership between A*STAR and Enterprise Singapore, its smoothie machine was created with busy professionals who are looking to prioritise their health without sacrificing convenience in mind.
Leveraging the first of its kind Individual Quantity Freezing (IQF) technology, Smooder guarantees that you get the most out of every fruit and vegetable, with a shelf life of up to 6 months. Aside from a wide variety of flavours, its machines come equipped with a blend-in-cup and self-cleaning technology which also means no preparation or cleaning required.
And some local companies are already jumping on the bandwagon. In fact, prior to its slated launch in April 2023, nearly 20 companies from various industries across Tech, Biomedical, Banking and Finance, have plans to integrate the Smooder machines into their office pantries.
And they’re not stopping there. Smooder recently secured S$200,000 in funding to drive its engineering and development efforts for its current model, and is on track to securing another S$250,000 to be channelled towards developing a smarter, upgraded machine coming soon to your office pantry.
