Founded in 2021, SaveEat helps eateries sell their fresh surplus food and also allows customers to get fresh, quality food from places that would have otherwise gone to waste if not consumed in time. 

“We plan to become a foodtech platform that’s addressing the Rs 40,000 crore problem of food wastage in the hospitality sector of India. The fundraise will help us expand our business operations across 3 key markets – Mumbai, Pune and Bengaluru. Our goal is to partner with over 3,000 outlets by March next year,” said Sneh Binny, founder and chief executive at SaveEat. 

“SaveEat is one of the only payers in India which is a business with a cause which sets it apart from other major players in the food-delivery industry. With a goal to make India a zero-food waste country, SaveEat is transforming how surplus food is managed in India,” said Aditya Kanoria, director at Credent Investment
