To help Mumbaikars amidst the Coronavirus lockdown, Agrify Organic Solutions has been working round the clock with 500 farmers in Nashik to prepare boxes of fresh vegetables and fruits.
Ever since the 21-day nationwide lockdown was announced, the lack of food supply is a common fear that has united people and sent them into a collective tizzy.
Due to restrictions in movement and transportation, food supply chains across India were disrupted. This led to a wave of worry on both sides, i.e., vendors and customers–especially in the case of fresh vegetables and fruits, that are a vital part of any healthy diet but are also perishable.
In Maharashtra, while the state government announced that vegetable markets could remain open 24/7 to meet the demands, Agrify Organic Solutions, a Mumbai-based startup has volunteered to home deliver fresh vegetables and fruits and has been working round the clock with 500 farmers in Nashik to ensure the same.
