SEOUL, May 03 (AJU PRESS) - Hanwha Robotics signed a memorandum of understanding with service robot firm B-Robotics to cooperate in restaurant automation solutions, the robot arm of Korea's Hanwha Group said Friday.

Under the deal, Hanwha will provide expertise in food technology, including culinary robots proficient in cooking meals and pouring wine, while B-Robotics will contribute serving robot-related technologies.

Previously, Hanwha Robotics showcased a robot sommelier capable of decanting wine, an essential step for removing unnecessary sediment. B-Robotics has already deployed over 3,100 robots across Korea. The robot developer is affiliated with Woowa Brothers, the company behind popular Korean food delivery app Bamin.

Upon integrating Hanwha's cooking robot solutions and B-Robotics' serving robots, the two companies will jointly conduct on-site testing. Hanwha is currently developing various robot chefs with the aim of revolutionizing kitchen automation. 

"Drawing on the strengths of Hanwha Robotics and B-Robotics, we will achieve both quantitative and qualitative growth in food tech services," said Hanwha Robotics CEO Seo Jong-hwi.
