Nepalese making meals plastic-free
Eco Sathi Nepal’s effort in making dining experiences more eco-friendly is targeted towards people who want to make conscious choices by using plastic-free cutlery, Prateek Agrawal, through his company B2B Hospitality Nepal, is addressing the burning issue of plastic packaging by making paper paper packaging available in the Nepali market for the hospitality and restaurant business in Nepal. Agrawal caters paper packaging to restaurants, eateries , and hospitality business houses. Likewise, B2B hospitality is also planning to diversify its products by entering into the retail business for which they have received an authorised distribution from Detpak, an international company that specialises in paper and cardboard packaging. However, what makes his products unique is its ability to hold liquid, which many paper packaging fails to do. “We live in a country that is fond of eating curries. However, the available paper packaging cannot hold liquid, due to which the food gets spilled, leading many people to use plastic packaging. That’s why we introduced paper packaging that can hold the liquid,” says Agrawal.
