Here’s another episode from our podcast series, we decided to have a quick chat with Shashank Gupta, the CEO and co-founder, The Nom.

In Shashank’s own words a quick note on the company:

Nom was established in Sep 2018 and right now we are a team of 6 people with more r&d centric focus. Nom is an innovative sustainable edible solutions company that aims to substitute single-use disposables with green, sustainable and eco-friendly solutions with edibility on top of that. Under our 1st solution vertical i.e, Eatables, we have developed world’s 1st ever flavored edible drinking straws, flavored edible ice cream sticks, flavored edible ice cream cups and spoons and tetra pack straws. Made from natural ingredients and FSSAI, ISO:22000 and FDA(pending) certified, our solution aims at changing user’s behavior of use and throw by building sustainable products with drop-dead taste on top of it. 

Our edible straws are baked and ready to eat straws and come in 6 flavors (Vanilla, Strawberry, Lemon, Mint, Chocolate, and Coffee). Currently, we have the capacity to make around 100,000 straws a day. We use the most basic ingredients such as rice flour, wheat flour, refined oil, salt, sugar, and a few more secret ingredients to make our edible solutions.”
