Bev Blum was a Founder, first President and the Executive Director of Solar Cookers International (SCI) from 1989-1999 and 2003-2006. Bev is the Secretariat of the Solar Cookers World Network, a network of independent solar cooker promoters and organizations associated with SCI for collective advocacy. Bev developed the first mass-produced foldable box cooker in 1992 and coordinated many volunters -- Roger Bernard, Barbara Kerr, Jay Campbell and Ed Pejack -- in developing the CooKit. It is the lowest-cost, either mass-produced or hand-made, family cooker and is now produced widely in Africa.
