Fraazo, a direct-to-consumer (D2C) brand in the fresh vegetables and fruits space, has raised $15 million in a Series A funding round led by Sixth Sense Ventures.
The company has also received strong interest from development finance institutions and multilaterals for an additional $5 million of financing for expansion and to enhance its procurement base with farmers in the North and Northeast India, it said in a statement.
The investment enables the company, which currently serves only the Mumbai market, to expand to other metros and invest in technology. The funding round is a mix of equity and debt, the company said.
Nabard-backed Nabventrues and existing investors Equanimity Ventures, Apar Group and Asian Paints’ Manish Choksi also participated in the current round.
Through a network of micro-fulfilment stores, Fraazo delivers farm-fresh vegetables and fruits across Mumbai within 60 minutes. Launched 12 months ago, it has served a million customers till date, the company said.
Founded last year by Atul Kumar, Vikas Dosala, Sumit Rai, and Aashish Krishnatre, Fraazo follows a farm-to-fork model where it owns the entire back-end supply chain starting with farmers. The company is looking to expand operations pan-India, while cashing in on the unprecedented digital adoption within the fragmented fresh food market.
