Global Q&A Series: Pantri Ties into the Smart Home
We’ve all been there. It’s a Saturday morning and it’s time to head out to the grocery store. You had all week to pull together your shopping list, yet here you are in the minutes prior to leaving the house and you’re scrambling around the refrigerator checking best-by dates, counting how many eggs are left in the carton, and taking a whiff of the milk to see if it still smells digestible. All seems fine, your list is essentially complete, and then Monday morning rolls around and you realize you somehow didn’t remember to check the cheese/deli meat drawer and now, instead of a nice cold cut sandwich, you’re schlepping a frozen “meal” to the office (because we all know those things barely fill up a quarter of your tummy).
For how smart our appliances are these days, you’d expect that they ought to be able to make our shopping lists for us so we can avoid that sort of situation, right? Well, that’s where pantri—a U.K.-based service—has stepped in. The pantri platform aims to be the bridge between today’s smart appliances and the grocery supply chain, giving customers a simple, smart way to have their groceries automatically replenished, hassle-free.
