Alekh Sanghera, Co-founder of, FarMart said, “This fundraise is a true reflection of the vision we have at FarMart, which is to build an operating system for the agribusiness community in India, starting with agri-retailers who are at the core of our business. Our remarkable growth over the past few months is testament to our thesis of building a product-first and an asset-light business, driven by our amazing team.”
Mehtab Singh Hans, Co-founder, FarMart, said, "Riding on the wave of liberalisation of agri-markets, we are uniquely positioned to build a deep and liquid delivery-spot market for agri-commodities. Farmers across the country would have direct access to formal markets, selling any commodity within a vicinity of 5-7 km from their farms."
