Speaking on the partnership, Mr. Ved Krishna, Vice-Chairman, Yash Pakka Ltd. said, “Since its inception, CHUK has envisioned a world where compostable tableware is the norm, not the exception. Our partnership with Blinkit as its sustainability partner is a significant step towards achieving this goal. With this, we want to be available wherever our customers are present, whether it is for a party or for COVID-mandated isolation, we’ll be there in just 10 minutes.”

Mr. Albinder Dhindsa, Founder and CEO, Blinkit, said, “Sustainability is a huge focal area for us at Blinkit. Over 75 percent of our packaging is already done in sustainable materials, such as compostable bags and cloth bags and we make sure our fruits and vegetables are packed in recycled paper rather than plastic. Given we see a huge demand for disposable tableware every Friday and Saturday, now instead of stocking paper or styrofoam products, we are glad to offer an entire disposable range, including plates, trays, and bowls, made of plant-based sustainable materials in partnership with CHUK.”
