AI accelerates in food tech as Whisk connects Instacart and AmazonFresh to 100m recipe views.
Instacart and Amazon have integrated with Whisk.com, the world’s leading AI food platform, to connect over 100 million monthly recipe views, from 20+ recipe publishers, to US and UK online carts.
Whisk.com uses advanced deep learning technology to match consumers’ grocery shopping preferences with 500,000 recipes from leading publishers, simplifying meal planning for millions of homes in the US, UK, Australia and 6 more languages internationally.
AmazonFresh and Instacart join Walmart and Peapod in the US and ASDA-Walmart, Tesco, Waitrose and Ocado in the UK to access global food brands and publishers like General Mills, McCormick, Allrecipes, BBC Good Food and Food Network.

Whisk CEO, Nick Holzherr, said, “Whisk’s US growth has been remarkable. We are enjoying working with really smart partners and looking forward to many more exciting developments in 2018”
