He said that this startup intends to improve the problem of plastic material use in developing countries by using his expertise to increase the plastic recycling rate and thus reduce the burden on the earth. The recycled plastic container they have developed is sold together with coffee grown in Ethiopia; they are now sold in supermarkets in Cologne.<br /><br /> This year's was the fourth Food Innovation Camp.
