Our Story:

We are Abhi and Phani – two ambitious and food-loving guys from India. We first met in Germany, where we came to study for our Masters’ program. In comparison to crowded and busy India, Germany seems very tidy and cleaned up… at first. When we traveled around and saw different main stations and bigger cities we saw lot of plastic waste lying around. We realized, however good the waste management system is: a lot of waste is a lot to manage – an impossible task. But we are engineers at heart so immediately we started to think about zero waste solutions.

But where should we start? We needed a real problem that we as students could actually come up with a solution for. During our summer job at a kitchen in Heidelberg, we noticed the movement and management of so many cutleries; some silverware went in the dishwasher, other disposable went in to the waste bin, some were plastic and could be recycled. However, all the waste ended up in a single bin in the hustle of a restaurant kitchen. After giving it a serious thought we realized cutleries are generally used to have food, why not make the cutlery eatable so that we can have food with food. This triggered the idea to make an edible cutlery which can be used functionally at the same time it is tasty when consumed.

To put our simple ideas into practice was a true journey and a lot of work. Abhinav as a big food enthusiast and skilled cook was crazy enough to iterate the idea in his kitchen at the baking oven. Our first few spoons were a disaster, some were too hard, too soft, disappearing in the soup, bad taste, burnt spoons and so on. But our passion spurred us on to develop our EATlery. As the research for this innovative product and manufacturing process for mass production was taking its shape, we were awarded scholarship from the Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Energie through EXIST program to support the research and development phase. This was one of the best moments and the beginning of our startup life!
