Meat delivery startupleverages its strong tech stack to improve customer insights from both human and non-human interactions.
Founded in 2016 by techpreneur Nishanth Chandran, TenderCuts claims to be India’s first tech-driven omnichannel fresh meat and Seafood Company. The brand was started with a mission to provide fresh antibiotic and hormone-free meat and seafood by establishing direct partnerships with local farming and fishing communities and strong backward links to guarantee absolute freshness.
Freshening up the industry
TenderCuts’ diverse application of food technology to the selection, processing, preservation, packaging, and distribution of fresh-cut meat and seafood has helped the company set a new benchmark in the industry. The startup has recently introduced a real-time tracking system for customers to know and identify when and where their meat was cut with a feature called Freshness Tracker.
Currently, TenderCuts is the only brand in the industry to introduce this feature, which increases confidence in the brand’s ‘Freshly Cut After You Order’ feature and enables the trackability of the order. Customers who pre-order their meat get an alert as soon as their meat is cut by a TenderCuts expert through the live-tracking feature, thereby ensuring quality and transparency at every level.
“The introduction of the Freshness Tracker feature will enhance the customer buying experience by building complete transparency in providing accurate information when their meat was freshly cut. Customers would be able to view their freshly cut order until delivery. We are delighted to move a step closer to our consumers with this real-time tracking feature,” says Nishanth Chandran, Founder and CEO, TenderCuts.
