During the pandemic, multiple sectors have been affected, with the catering industry being one of them. Grabbing a bite outside won’t ever be the same. However, with the aim of delivering hygienic and safe food, the UK-based robotics company Karakuri has unveiled the pre-production version of its food preparing robot, the DK-One. In addition, the startup has raised a notable €7.20M in its latest investment round.
The latest funding of €7.20M in the company was led by firstminute capital. Other investors in the company include Hoxton Ventures, Taylor Brothers, Ocado Group and the Future Fund, which the UK government developed and is being delivered via British Business Bank. The fresh funds will be utilised to accelerate the development of Karakuri’s technologies further and create new products alongside the DK-One.
