RAW.K has taken health food technology to a futuristic new level in the Kingdom — by employing the services of a salad robot.

The hi-tech and healthy fast food option has been introduced by RAW.K in partnership with Chowbotics, a Silicon Valley-based food robotics company that developed the machine as a way to tackle food service challenges such as speed, freshness, and convenience.
