Online startups on a gravy train after the clampdown on UP’s illegal slaughterhouses
Around half of UP’s Slaughterhouses have shut down after the order of State Government for not following basic norms and guidelines laid down for operation, transportation and processing of slaughtered animals.
It could have become a prolonged situation for people living in UP but it isn’t because of the Online Start-ups.
For online start-ups, it is very lucrative now, as they will be the only source of eating fresh, healthy and toothsome. And when we talk about, toothsome, how can we forget Zappfresh.
Zappfresh- An ultimate source of raw, processed and palatable Chicken, Mutton, Fish. It’s not just a statistic from Google, but a customer’s critique. Mandal,35- A happy customer, shares that he orders chicken mutton thrice a week and unwavering customers like him have helped Zappfresh jolt from 100 orders a day in 2015 to over 1,000 orders now in Delhi and Gurgaon.
The ban in UP is affirmative for online cold dish sellers who work only with licensed automated plants,” says Deepanshu Manchanda, co-founder of Zappfresh.
