How to use the Kitchen Diary
Propose a menu according to the palatability of the area

(Example) Menu: Ranking (percentage) of fish species used for grilled fish with salt/grilled fish without salt
Tips for new product development/line-up expansion
You can identify hidden needs and/or signs of new trends from the reasons why survey respondents particularly like a menu and the names of other menus they indicated and gather food product development tips.
