Imagine eating your spoon, fork, or chopsticks after your meal.
Bakey’s founder Narayana Peesapathy, invented an alternative for plastic cutlery. His cutlery, unlike any other cutlery, can be eaten after use.
The edible cutlery is made of flours of rice, wheat, jowar (millet) and water. It is available in different flavors: plain, sweet (added with a little sugar), savory (added with rock salt, black pepper, cumin seed, and Ajwin), ginger cinnamon, ginger-garlic, mint-ginger, and carrot-beetroot.
Highly nutritious, 100% natural, these cutlery have no added preservatives, does not require refrigeration, and can be stored for three years. Even if flavored, it does not dominate the taste of the food.
The edible cutlery is also environmentally-friendly, as it decomposes naturally in less than five days if you throw it away.
Narayana aims to lessen the problem in plastic pollution in India and at the same time promote jowar (millet) production which is cheaper and easier to cultivate than rice.
As he says on the video, “plastic is very cheap, true, but I can make it as cheap, I can, with volumes, and once I get the volumes, I can go to the farmers directly and start procuring raw material directly from the farmers, in which case my spoons will be as cheap as the plastic spoons”.
Bakey’s Food Private Limited was established in 2010 in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India. The video of their amazing product has garnered more than 4 million views and they have sold more than 1.5 million units so far.
