We are ZELK, a team of four young female engineers developing a buffet spread dispenser to replace single-use plastic packaging and the food waste associated with it. After learning that one quarter of our landfill is made up of plastic waste, we were driven to develop a sustainable solution that supports Australian made goods.
After meeting with the CEO of Bega, we are now meeting regularly with their specific faculties (such as Food Service and Manufacturing) within Bega. Bega is a leader in spread production in Australia; owning Vegemite, Zoosh as well as making Peanut Butter. They are very excited to work closely with us to support future integration, a great step towards achieving ZELK's goal! We have secured kitchens for trials, developed our prototype and are now working to secure more producers of spreads!
