Dinesh Tadepalli is the co-founder of Planeteer, a company that is helping to solve the plastic pollution problem by replacing plastic cutlery with edible cutlery. The brand’s first products are non-gmo, all natural spoons that stay firm for 25 minutes in hot soups and 45 minutes in ice cream. The company aims to resonate with Millennials and younger generations who make conscious purchasing decisions and care about plastic pollution and climate change, as well as partner with food service locations that want to drive revenue, provide an eco-friendly value add, and enhance the consumer experience. The company is open to working with a strategic partner with experience in marketing and sales to help build the next generation of cutlery.
