Piñatex™ is produced from the fibers of pineapple leaves which are a by-product of the pineapple harvest. Piñatex™ involves a patented technology that protects both the process and the finished material.

This is specifically to enhance the finishing technology. Piñatex can be used as a leather alternative or textile in the fashion, accessory and upholstery markets.

Bakeys: edible cutlery

Bakeys: edible cutlery | Values Led Business | Scoop.it
This innovation of edible cutlery was drawn from the following concerns: 
 1. Depletion of groundwater can be arrested by creating markets for less irrigation demanding crops such as jowar (sorghum). The edible cutlery is made from flours of this crop. 
2. Demand for power from the agriculture sector does not commensurate its contribution to the GDP and on the contrary is creating pressures on other sectors, notably on the manufacturing sector. This is largely because of the faulty crop choices. This initiative could help in triggering the right crop mix (even districts with scanty rainfall are registering increasing trends in water guzzling rice crop). 
3. The demand for plastic cutlery is increasing over the days. Plastic, a petroleum by-product is more harmful to human body because of the presence of several toxins and carcinogens. Its application as food consumption utensil enhances the chances of these chemicals to get into the human system.
