“In India, snacking is more than just what we eat; it is a tradition and an important part of our cultural identity, as quoted in the report ‘State of Snacking Report: A Global Consumer Trend Study’. We think the company is revolutionising the idea of snacking with its ready-to-eat snacks and ready-to-cook range. We strongly believe in the company’s prospects, and this funding will aid the company as it marches on in its growth journey,” said Mr. Apurva Doshi, Sr. Vice President, Equity Capital Markets, Prime Securities Limited.

Madmix is committed to providing fun, stress-free, and balanced meals to the public with their innovative blends.

Presently, it continues to explore new flavours, combinations, and techniques to provide the best options to its customer base.

The startups function in a competitive environment in the millet-based food sector and face competition from various players like Slurrp Farm, Millet Express, Milltet AMMA, and Eat Millet, among others.

“The idea of mindful and healthy eating will drive the demand for snacking in India. We firmly believe that Madmix is rightly placed and offers balanced nutrition in every product, combining with health and taste,” said Mrs. Niru Kanodia, Director, Team India Managers Limited.
