Meal ideas are now just a finger tap away
iFood Assistant launches in Canada
Just in time for holiday cooking and entertaining, Kraft Canada has announced the launch of its iFood Assistant application in Canada. The iFood Assistant helps consumers find the perfect recipe, create quick and easy shopping lists and get tips for entertaining - all at the tap of a finger.
"People's lives are becoming increasingly complex and one of their biggest challenges is mealtime," says Ed Kaczmarek, director of innovation, consumer experiences at Kraft Foods. "Now, they can use their iPhone, iPod touch or BlackBerry to make cooking convenient, delicious and more enjoyable."
With more consumers going wireless and looking to their mobile phones for information, iFood Assistant is a great tool to help streamline shopping and prepare delicious and satisfying food at home. Whether they're seasoned chefs or first-time cooks, the convenience of these delicious recipes available on iPhone, iPod touch and BlackBerry will leave everyone satisfied.
In addition to the iFood Assistant, Kraft Canada is ensuring that all mobile users can meal plan on-the-go with the launch of Kraft Canada's mobile site. By visiting m.kraftcanada.ca, mobile users can now easily view the recipe of the day, look up meal ideas and search recipes on their wireless devices.
