With this new unit, the company aims to cater to the growing customer demand from North India, particularly in the Delhi-NCR region. Additionally, the manufacturing facility in Haryana will help the retailer cater to consumer demand from tier 2 markets, according to the release.
The plant will produce 15 tons of idly and dosa batter, along with four tons Malabar and wheat parota, per day, said the company adding that it expects the new facility to generate Rs 50 crore revenue in FY 22-23.
“The demand for our idly and dosa batter, along with our Malabar parotas, has been growing phenomenally, particularly in the Northern markets,” said PC Musthafa, CEO and co-founder of iD Fresh Food.
He further highlighted that in the case of perishable food products, it’s crucial to have the manufacturing facilities closer to the markets and thus, the company is excited about expanding its reach.
Speaking about distribution in Delhi NCR region, the packaged foods maker expects doorstep deliveries through e-commerce platforms to continue playing a strategic role. However, at the same time, the brand is expanding its offline distribution across modern trade and traditional trade stores, said the release.
Currently, the company claims to cater to over 45 cites, across 30,000 retail stores in India, UAE and US.
