Eating, we do it every day and preferably as healthy as possible. But how is it actually ensured that our food becomes more healthier? This small technology company has been the company for improvement of our food for several decades. Here, a robust platform, Big Data and years of knowledge of food have been combined into an innovative product. This organization ensures that we as consumers have access to increasingly healthier food. How cool is that! Important to know that we are no speaking about genetically modified organism (GMO). This technology club has a very innovative character and that is why a lot of R&D takes place here. People are constantly looking for the systems to work even more precisely and faster. After all, we are talking about healthier food for the world's population. Every profit counts here. It will not surprise you that the systems are built up very qualitatively and that they are dealing with enormous amounts of data. You will also encounter a wide range of technologies here. Think of a Java8, Spring Boot, and Docker environments for the applications, Spark / Hadoop clusters for big data environment combined with a Cassandra database and VueJS and React for the dashboards that were developed here for analytics.
