Existing investors like Ashish Chand from Yukti Securities, FactorE Ventures, and Pravega Ventures also participated in the round. This is the third round of funding for the firm. In 2018, it raised Rs 5 crore in pre-series A round, which was led by FactorE ventures and angel investors.

Through its distribution centers, Crofarm supplies vegetables and fruits to more than 300 retailers including small and medium retailers. The startup mainly sources fresh farm produce from farmers across the UP, Haryana, Delhi, Bangalore, and Maharashtra.
