According to a report by Shameen Alauddin in Business Standard, if you run a hotel, restaurant or catering business, you would have faced the exhaustion in buying food items such as fruit, vegetables, pulses, meat and poultry from vendors spread across the city. Online platform WOTU (We Organise The Unorganised) provides a one-stop business-to-business (B2B) portal for delivering food commodities within 24 hours. Founded by Dhruv Sawhney in 2015, the Bengaluru-based firm has raised an undisclosed amount of pre-Series A funding from Claris Capital and Mumbai Angels Network. Traditionally, standalone restaurants and hotels depend on local vendors or go to the market themselves. The vendors would then have to cater to 30-50 buyers. This is where most middlemen come in and eat the profit margin on both sides. “This industry is mired with unethical practices in sourcing. We believe true value can be created by directly connecting farmers, processors and manufacturers with the end-buyer through our platform,” said Sawhney.
