|Brief of the Startup
|Problem they are solving
|Pasoli Agro Industry Private Limited
|They are building a tech-enabled, alternate, and value-added supply chain of agro products through a direct-to-consumer brand 'Mohabaahu Fresh'.
|The need for an organized supply chain for fresh agro-produce. From farm to table, the produce undergoes 5 to 6 intermediaries, resulting in high consumer prices. Moreover, there is also a lack of quality checking, packaging, and logistics. On the backend side, it affects the farmers in terms of the prices they get for the produce. The unavailability of demand forecast results in a huge demand-supply mismatch which eventually leads to surplus produce and wastage due to the highly perishable nature of the produces. The lack of a cold-chain and storage facility adds more to it. It is observed that approximately 24% of the fresh produce gets wasted in India (As per FAO, UN) due to the lack of supply chain infrastructure. The food wastage in India amounts to approximately US $14B per year, out of which 40% is fresh fruits and vegetables.
