Founded in 2017 by IIT Kharagpur alumni Abhishek Negi, Aditya Singh, and Uttam Kumar, Bihar-based Eggoz claims to have built an asset-light farmer integration model that delivers nutrition and eggs to masses at scale. Its products are available in Delhi-NCR, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Chandigarh, Jaipur, Lucknow, and other non-metro cities.
In the last year alone, the startup claims to have grown by more than five times.
“Eggs being a major source of protein and a dietary staple for a huge section of India's 1.4 billion population, the market potential is tremendous. Eggoz, with its unique model, has the potential to capture this market and become the leader in this segment," said Vikram Gupta, Founder and Managing Partner, IvyCap Ventures Advisors Pvt Ltd.
Eggoz assures one-day delivery of fresh eggs to consumers via omnichannel, sourced directly from farmers who work under a fully integrated model. All its products are produced with herbal hens and monitored regularly through tech and veterinarian care.
