Popular Lecture on Edible Cutlery

11-05-2018

A lecture on ‘Edible Cutlery’ was organised at CRTL, Kolkata on 11 May 2018 as a part of popular lecture series to mark the Silver Jubilee year celebration of CRTL. The inventor of the Edible Cutlery Mr. Narayan Peesapaty was the keynote speaker of the program who enlightened us about this cutlery. According to Mr. Peesapaty, plastic spoons are full of toxins but this edible cutlery branded as Bakeys spoons are full of nutrition. The Bakeys edible cutlery is manufactured in Hyderabad in the state of Telangana, India. Ingredients like millets blended with rice, wheat and salt are used to make the edible cutlery and then they are baked at high temperature. According to Mr. Peesapaty, the team is working on reducing the price of the cutlery to overcome the stiff competition with the cheap plastic cutlery. Mr. Peesapaty was selected as GREEN HERO by Wellspun renewables in 2015.
