  • Zero Egg challenges students to make the world’s highest egg flipZero Egg challenges students to make the world’s highest egg flip

In its quest to make plant-based food accessible to everyone, Zero Egg is starting with the newest generation of food lovers — college students! The plant-based egg company took America’s largest college, the University of Central Florida (UCF) by storm yesterday, kicking off its partnership with the university by serving up delicious plant-based egg meals; delivering Zero Egg sandwiches to students around campus on their own branded tandem bicycle; and hosting an afternoon of fun and games on the campus’ Greek Row.

But the highlight of the show was the Zero Egg omelet flip! Currently, there is no world record holder for the world’s highest egg flip, and Zero Egg is on a mission to secure it! The brand will be scouring colleges across the country to find America’s highest egg flipper. Once secured, Zero Egg intends to work with Guinness World Records on capturing the record, because who needs another record held by an ordinary egg? Not when Zero Egg can get it done — doing all of the same things an ordinary egg can do, such as flip, scramble, bake and fry.

An ordering app as your waiter and a robot as your chef! More and more examples of these two items are spotted worldwide. The app is common use now and robots are spotted in restaurants as well.
