December 8, 2016: Food and beverage industry have changed a lot in the recent. There are many startups and they have completely changed the way Food and Beverage industry was seen. Here are 5 start ups which have changed the industry:

1. Zomato
Well, there is no doubt that Zomato tops the list. It is now more of a norm to check out the Zomato ratings before trying out any food joint. Zomato has become the Google for the food industry all over India.
It is now operating in 23 countries; Zomato is used by millions every day to decide where to eat. It is an online database for restaurants.
Zomato from time to time introduces new services to its clients. It is also aiming to launch a rider tracking app for the restaurants as well as for the users.

2. FoodPanda
With its unique polices it has gained huge popularity among general masses. It has almost disrupted the food industry with its offers and discounts to the customers.
When the app gives a discount to its customers, the app pays for it. Therefore, the restaurants could not sell their foods and beverages at their own rates but, the orders only went in through the app.So those who didn’t tie up with the company miserably suffered because of it.
FoodPanda is now operating in more than 50 cities across India. In a very short time, FoodPanda has become a lifeline for the foodies, who can simply order from the app and the food will be delivered to their doorstep.

3. Swiggy
The concept of Swiggy is similar to that of FoodPanda. They have just started in 2014, and it is now one of the very few startups which does not have a minimum order value for home delivery. Apart from the concept of FoodPanda it has just added logistics. It makes sure there is no untimely delivery. Swiggy is doing really well under the Food industry.

4. NomNom
This is just a year-old startup in India and is doing really well. The reason being they took hold of one of the major problems of the restaurants.
NomNom simply provides a centralised Order Taking Solution to restaurants. They just forward the calls to their call centre agency.
The convenience which they provide is highly benefitial to the restaurants. They answer almost 99% of all order-taking calls where it is just 60-70% when the restaurants manage it by themselves.
More calls answered, means more orders taken which in turn gives more revenue.

The world's largest producer of ketchup announced the Packet Roller, a ketchup bottle-shaped gadget that allows users to squeeze the most out of a condiment packet, CNN reported.

Heinz has just rolled out a new product that the condiment company says is the "biggest innovation in sauce since the packet itself." Earlier this month, the world's largest producer of ketchup announced the Packet Roller, a ketchup bottle-shaped gadget that allows users to squeeze the most out of a condiment packet, CNN reported.

"Do not click 'purchase' unless you are prepared to change everything about the way you sauce," the Heinz Packet Roller website says. The roller goes for $5.70. The roller is pocket-sized, can be added to a keychain, and features a packet corner cutter.

Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer, is recovering from a right-knee surgery he underwent last month.

Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer, who is recovering from a right-knee surgery he underwent last month, said on Sunday that it was a difficult process to decide whether to undergo a third right-knee surgery after having two last year. But following Wimbledon, where he was "really unhappy" with his performance in reaching the quarterfinals, Federer opted to go through with it.

Federer, who made a late decision to attend this year's Laver Cup in Boston -- a tournament held between teams from Europe and the rest of the world -- said on the sidelines of the event that the recovery and rehabilitation are "going to take me a few more months and then we'll see how things are at some point next year". "The reception I've received, everybody is so upbeat that I'm here. They wish me all the best and they don't even see the crutches. They just want me to be good again and enjoy the weekend," Federer said in an interview for the event with former world No. 1 Jim Courier.

"I've seen some incredible tennis, some great matches and it's been wonderful. I'm really happy I made the trip," the winner of 20 majors was quoted as saying by atptour.com. On why he opted for a third surgery, the tennis ace said, "I was just nowhere near where I wanted to be to play at the top, top level. But I tried my best and at the end... too much is too much. Now I've just got to take it step by step," Federer said.
