Looking at the growth opportunities, The startup also plans to expand into other cities as well.
It offers chemical-free products through value chains augmented by artificial intelligence (AI), which allows them to provide traceable logistics, green packaging, and smart payment options to its customers.
“We’re charged with the investors’ confidence, as they oversubscribed our startup during this seed round,” said, Manish Piyush, Founder at Puresh Daily.
“We expect the Farm to Home space to explode in the coming months. Biggies like Tatas & Reliance are entering the market through investments and acquisitions too. By incubating our business model at Ranchi, we’ve proved that consumers from the so-called ‘Bharat’ are ready and willing to pay a premium for such services,” said, Aditya Kumar.
“We also want to invest our time and resources in innovation in products and packaging”, he added.
Both Manish and Aditya also handles technology, marketing, finance, business and product development for the startup, it said.
Speaking on the investment, Prashant Narang, Founder of Agility Venture Partners, said, “First, milk is a recession-free business, capable of growth in COVID times. It’s also highly unorganised, with several dairy farms in dire need of upgradation and market reach. Their idea has enormous potential.”
