Food Sales Prediction Model using scikit-learn* (sklearn): Developer Spotlight

1 0 11.9K

Sales prediction is important in the food industry to improve business operations and profitability. Also, sales prediction allows companies to minimize stocked and expired products and, at the same time, avoid missing sales.

Sayan Malakar is an entrepreneur and co-founder of Try the menu, a startup that provides engagement and management services to restaurants and cafes. Sayan, in his blog, proposed a solution for food sales prediction using Intel® Extension for Scikit-learn* and Streamlit. With this prediction model, he can help his clients make better business decisions by enabling them to introduce new menu items and pricing strategies based on predicted sales.

The blog explains the various steps involved in the project:

  1. Setup the environment for the project
  2. Data Preprocessing
  3. Model Training
  4. Model Testing
