About Us

In 2004, MenuWise (called MyRecipes back then) rocked the food service industry with an app which enabled users to do things they previously could only dream of. We gave New Zealand's professional chefs the power to cost any recipe in just minutes, as well as know the nutrion - something which was prone to error, was difficult, and used to take a long me.

While we made headlines, and were in fact SAAS pioneers, we didn't think much of this. For us, it was just the beginning of a mission which had only just begun.

Fast forward 20 years, (gee! where did that go?!) with the support of our users who love our app, we're on a new mission to take this to the world using cutting edge tech to do things even smarter, easier and faster.
