Trump to unveil smart phone app definition
Trump is set to unveil a smartphone app definition that would help restaurant owners and other businesses figure out what to order based on their location.
The White House is working on a proposal to help restaurant and restaurant-associated service providers, such as ordering agents, choose between different food types and menu options based on customer preferences.
The concept, called “smart food,” is part of the administration’s effort to help businesses understand customer needs in a globalized world.
The concept has not been formally approved by the White House Office of Management and Budget, but the proposal is expected to come out this month.
The proposal would be similar to what Uber and Lyft have done to improve service and expand its reach.
Trump is expected in the coming months to make changes to the federal regulations governing the industry, which were established to curb the rampant competition between big food companies.
It is not clear how much impact the new proposal would have.
“The food industry has taken the federal government’s leadership in creating this model, and they have done so in a way that will make it easier for the American people to eat healthy,” said Michelle Rhee, president of the American Beverage Association, in a statement Thursday.
“Our members are eager to see this technology continue to improve the quality of our food and to help people make healthier food choices.”
