FoodCloud, an online resource portal that provides variety of cuisines through registered chefs and caterers, has raised Rs 3.5 crore for expanding its operations beyond NCR and has entered Kolkata.
With 30 chefs on board, the company aims to connect home-based food expertise with customer demands without a delivery radius restriction, thus bringing new areas such as Salt Lake in Kolkata closer to the main city hub.
“Our present chefs are offering a varied appetite indulgence including comfort American foods, Chinese, Tex-Mex, specialised bakery requirements, desserts, Mughlai food for those who’s shifted here recently, with smatterings of Italian, Burmese and even French cuisine. These items can be delivered anywhere within Kolkata with a few hours’ notice and ordering on FoodCloud,” the company said in a statement.
“FoodCloud also received its first phase of funding amounting to the total invested into this Food Tech biz now at Rs 3.5 crore,” it said.
The statement added that FoodCloud has been inducted into the ‘Start Up India Programme’ by the Government of India and the Ministry of Commerce & Industry.
