Malaysia has a huge buffet culture, especially during the Ramadan period and various holiday seasons. To curb the issue of food waste during these times, the Buffet Robot functions with a team of 100 robots to take excess buffet food and distribute it to the poor. The robots are built to detect contaminated food products so that it will not be given to the poor but made into organic waste or compost instead.
