In November 2018, Zomato entered the B2B foodtech space after acquiring the Bengaluru-based startup WOTU.
- These small trucks are filled with neatly packed containers of high-quality fresh produce - fruits, vegetables, grain, poultry, dairy, and fresh meats.
- Founded by former PayPal executive Dhruv Sawhney in 2015, WOTU raised funding from the likes of Kae Capital, Mumbai Angels Network, and Claris Capital before being acquired by Zomato in late 2018.Prior to the acquisition in October 2018, WOTU served 250 restaurants out of a 6,000 square foot warehouse.
- When Deepinder Goyal, Co-founder and CEO of Zomato, decided to transform Zomato into a foods company, they had realised one thing - Zomato had to have control over supply.
- The idea is to become a food company, with complete control on where, how and what the customer eats, especially from outside," he said in a conversation with YourStory late last year.
