AI has been making significant strides since the end of last year, sweeping the world by storm. This remarkable progress is now manifesting in the grocery industry, where AI is proving to be instrumental in enhancing the shopping experience for customers.

According to a Forbes article, AI is playing a vital role in creating a more personalized shopping experience for customers, a crucial aspect for grocers seeking to retain loyal customers. By offering personalized product recommendations based on customer requests rather than assumptions, AI is elevating the overall shopping experience and increasing customer loyalty.

Furthermore, Generative AI is also making waves in the industry by assisting customers in discovering new and related products they might not have otherwise considered. The ability of AI to automatically suggest recipes based on the store's available stock is a game changer in streamlining the shopping process.

However, to achieve this level of personalization and understanding of customer preferences, AI tools needs trained data.
