We are a Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO) that offers our compostable straw as a drug delivery platform.
A changing world has seen a sharp rise in the critical conditions, mental illness and nutrition deficiencies, which is placing a huge burden on all of us.
Lack of compliance and good habits exacerbates health issues, often due to our inherent negativity bias, which demotivates people and traps them into a cycle of negativity.
The worlds rising health concerns need a fresh approach. In 2013, Unistraw was acquired by SRS Life Sciences to address these by kickstarting the cycle of health and positivity, reframing compliance as a simple, enjoyable part of life. Our mission is to convert the compostable straw into a mainstream drug delivery system by offering our technology as a platform to other businesses.
Every day he would encourage his four children to drink milk, because he knew it would help them build strong bones and teeth. What he didn’t like were the flavoured milk powders and drinks that masked the goodness of milk because they were full of artificial colourings and too much sugar.
So Peter, who was really good at making things (Industrial Engineer), decided to invent the Sipahh straw. For his first prototype he used his daughter’s stocking, then as the concept developed it took eight years (but lucky for his daughter – no more of her stockings!) to perfect his totally unique product.
Invented by Peter Baron. Transforms boring milk into a fun beverage - instantly
