Bakeys .has successfully raised funds & reached the goal amount. We thank all the 1571 generous supporters for their kindness.
Hello. Following my post this morning, I got a few mails informing me that they did not receive the order. I request you to please type you name and (if changed), address in the comment section here on Ketto page. I shall collate these and send this list with tomorrow's dispatch. For those who paid Rs 1350 and above, you are considered as bulk order. Please do not think we have missed out on you. Happy spoon feeding!!;)
We have lined up our production or ketto foreign orders. They will go country wise for logistic convenience. Please don't be disheartened. Those who have received it in India seem to be enjoying it and also wish to order for more. As you all have supported us we have come this far, evolved with new machine design, 24x7 production and paper packaging in place of plastic film we used initially. Everything has been happening as we desired and as we improve technology, create another bigger machine and produce fourfold more spoons by March for all those who may place repeat orders and those who have not yet placed order at all. The flood of order mails has not weaned nor our efforts have fizzzled. Each day is full of enthusiasm and positive vibes. We are happy it has become a revolution of sorts as is proving by the mails and appreciation we have received. Continue your love and hope on us. we will grow with your good wishes and our hard work. Thanks and Regards, Narayana
Welcome to the world of ‘edible cutlery’. Now you can use your spoons, sporks or chopsticks and eat them after use. These are ‘Edible’ because they are made of flours. They contain absolutely no chemicals or preservatives and are just flours kneaded with water and are 100% natural products. BAKEYS’ was established in 2010 in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, to provide an alternative to plastic disposable cutlery and the bamboo disposable chopsticks. After much research, we have developed the designs of the product, used it and enhanced it so that the user feels comfortable in all aspects of using cutlery.
We were excited with that and invested in many hours of research, to reach wider markets.
The idea struck me while I spotted a few people use khakra to pick food served on a flight. Later, I was familiarised with rotis made by Sorghum (Jowar) which are really hard and tough in texture, I had to soak them in dal for a while till it turned softer in order to consume. This pushed me to work on an organic spoon made of food, as an alternative to plastic spoons.
Let me begin with a quote, the source of which I couldn’t trace, “Change is inevitable. Before this change can overtake and overwhelm us, we should be the instruments of change.”
A former researcher with ICRISAT – Narayana was the one to come up with the idea of Edible Cutlery. He holds BSC (Hons) in Chemistry from Osmania University and MBA from IIFM- Bhopal. He worked as Associate Research Director at AC Neilsen ORG-Marg, Baroda, India and had undertaken over 50 consulting assignments related to agriculture and Agri-based industries, forestry and forest based cottage industries, rural development, renewable energy technologies, etc. and headed the energy and forestry sector. Later he joined International Water Management Institute (IWMI), based in the premises of International Crop Research Institute for Semi Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), Hyderabad as Senior Scientific Officer. Here he undertook research on the nexus between energy and groundwater under a USAID supported program WENEXA. Published several policy and research papers on groundwater management and associated issues such as Minimum Support Prices supporting development of groundwater irrigation intensive agriculture, need for groundwater legislation, inputs to the Andhra Pradesh Water Land Tree act 2004, etc. He is the Founder and Managing Director of Bakeys Foods Private Limited- - Developing innovative solutions (grounded on business model) to growing environmental problems, managing the operations, developing the team and all associated functions required for running the Company. He believes that the “Change is inevitable. Before this change can overtake and overwhelm us, we should be the instruments of change”. He created this business to disprove the conventionally known fact that environmental safeguarding and social responsibility rarely integrate with sound business process". He says, "for Bakeys Foods, environmental and social amelioration is the business".
