Bengaluru-based agri-tech platform Ninjacart has expanded its operations to the west and northern markets in the country. The platform that connects farmers to retailers has now started its operations in Mumbai, Pune and Delhi. Its expansion in new geographical locations has been triggered by Rs 250 crore of series B funding. Established three years ago, the platform has been primarily catering in the south Indian market and presently handles 350 tonnes of vegetables and fruits from over 4,000 growers.
“We are excited to expand our footprint outside South India. It is an opportunity for us to generate employment possibilities, introduce the supply chain, allow cultivators to build consistency in demand and facilitate doorstep delivery for retailers at better prices,” CEO and co-founder of Ninjacart, Thirukumaran Nagarajan said.
