“SuperZop is using a vertically driven product approach to build farm-tech brands with greater sourcing linkages using tech and process innovation.

“We have developed right tools like an AI based quality assessment platform and logistics optimization engine that works for the B2B staples category. One of the key areas of fund deployment will be to build on data science and enhance systems for greater scale”, said Darshan Krishnamurthy, Co-founder of SuperZop.

“We are delighted to partner with the high-performance founders of SuperZop who are making an impact by bringing MSME food processors and Kirana stores more closely integrated, thereby delivering value to both farmers and retail consumers.
