FSSAI holds brainstorming sessions on sidelines of two-day Global Millets Conference
Raises its first round from an impressive assortment of VCs and angel investors
Sudo Foods has raised seed funding from Java Capital, Betaplus Capital, and prominent angel investors such as Ravi Saxena (MD, Wonderchef), Deep Bajaj (Co-Founder & CEO, Sirona Hygiene), and Ajay Garg (Founder & MD, Equirus Capital), along with others.
The fundraising news comes on the heels of Sudo Food’s launch a few weeks ago, where the startup announced that after a year of operating in stealth mode, their plant-based chicken and mutton dishes were now retailing on their website and on popular online platforms like BigBasket.
Their plant-based chicken samosas, chicken seekh kebabs, chicken popcorn, and mutton galouti kebabs use ethical ingredients which are all 100% plant-based. Using seitan and soya with zero preservatives, zero cholesterol, and zero trans fats gives their consumers dishes that look, cook, smell, and sizzle just like meat, without the negative impact on personal and planetary health.
With this infusion of capital, the startup is planning on expanding their team to bring on board deep expertise in food technology, food production, safety, compliance, and culinary applications. Sudo’s SKUs are all produced in-house, not relying on white label products, but instead focusing on developing proprietary products that stand out in an increasingly growing market.
Going forward, with their seed funding being directed towards R&D, innovation, and product development, their consumers can expect a new product in the market every few months.
