Gurugram-based online meat delivery startup Meatigo is planning to raise external funding in the new fiscal year to meet business growth. However, the amount of funds to be raised is not yet disclosed.
Founded in 2016 by Siddhant Wangdi, Meatigo.com (Meat and Spice Private Limited) offers online meat & seafood delivery service across Delhi, Gurgaon, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kolkata, and Mumbai.
Meatigo partners with those who have HACCP Certification and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) to provide quality meat products to their customers. It also caters to the meat & deli meat requirements of 500+ restaurant chains & hotels across the country.
It competes with Licious, Zappfresh, FreshToHome, TenderCuts, among several other meat delivery startups.
“We started Meatigo in 2016 after I’d come back from working abroad and had just had it with the haphazard quality of meat at local butcheries and complete lack of a product range, having become accustomed to the quality and variety in foreign countries,” said Siddhant Wangdi.
Speaking about the possible fundraise, Siddhant Wangdi told ET, “the company plans to scale its business across its meats, ready-to-eat food, and do-it-yourself (DIY) meals.”
Following the growth in the meat delivery segment, Meatigo is also planning to start its meat delivery operation in Chennai, Tamil Nadu.
Currently, It offers 150+ meat products, including chicken, mutton, pork, buff, bacon, sausages, cold cuts, fish and seafood, spreads, processed cheese, momos, burger patties, ready-to-cook marinades, and heat-and-serve-kebabs.
According to the Redseer data, During the January-September 2020 period, the online meat delivery market has managed to post 2.5-3X gross merchandise value (GMV).
Last year, Meatigo had introduced a special festival menu to cater to stuck-at-home foodies.
