New Delhi. The restaurant business has been badly affected amidst the Corona crisis. There is a fear in the minds of the consumers whether the utensils in which the food is being delivered have been cleaned properly or not. At the same time, there is also a risk of spreading infection if the plastic utensils are repeatedly touched. In such a situation, utensils made by Bengaluru-based startup ‘EdiblePRO’ can prove to be a good option.
Actually, these utensils can be served only once i.e. a cutlery set can be used only once. The biggest feature of this cutlery is that there is no hassle of washing it. After finishing the meal, you can eat spoon, bowl, plate, glass everything. That is, the water that goes to waste in washing dishes is also saved.
