Farm-to-fork firm Otipy is set to mop up fresh capital in an extended series B round from new and existing investors, two sources aware of the matter told Entrackr. The fresh funding will hit the company’s coffers 28 months after it raised $32 million in Series B in March 2022.

“A new investor along with existing ones are investing $10 million in Otipy,” said one of the sources requesting anonymity. “The company has received a term sheet and the deal is likely to get materialized soon.”

Sources say that the capital will be used to strengthen Otipy’s operations in existing cities and expansion. It’s operational in Delhi (NCR) and Mumbai but it may launch in Bengaluru and Hyderabad, said sources.

Otipy operates a farm-to-fork delivery model by procuring directly from farmers and delivering fresh produce to consumers every morning. “The firm does Rs 20 crore gross merchandise value (GMV) every month with a Rs 3 crore burn. After establishing itself as a leader in fruits and vegetables, the firm plans to additionally focus on grocery. Otipy is also set to achieve EBITDA breakeven in FY25,” said another source who also requested anonymity as talks are yet to be public.

Queries sent to Otipy didn’t elicit any immediate response.

Otipy has raised $44 million to date including its $32 million Series B round led by Westbridge Capital in 2022. According to the startup data intelligence platform TheKredible, SIG Global is the largest external stakeholder in the firm followed by WestBridge Capital.

The Gurugram-based company managed over 50% growth in scale to Rs 173 crore in FY24 from Rs 115 crore in FY23. Moreover, its losses also declined by 21% in the fiscal year ending March 2024.
