Business Model


Most of the commodities for food consumption are produced minding only the low price and simplicity, whereas little to none effort is put on environmental impact. The market need for environmentally friendly alternatives with competitive pricing is enormous. The need will be further magnified by the EU ban on many single-use plastics in 2021. Pillirookõrs uses natural reed to produce drinking straws, cups, plates and more.

Target


Improve straw production capacity; entering international market; modified reed products pilot series; machinery development and construction for automation
