App intends to empower women to earn from home
Akashjyoti Das, a final-year B.Tech student from the Mechanical Engineering department of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur, has floated an app that intends to act as a platform for all those women chefs at home who would like to go commercial.
Das, who’s from Assam, and co-founder Prithvi Sai brought the idea of this app, aptly called Foodio, into existence amid a pandemic. This app, developed under the umbrella of FoodioTech, a company owned by the duo, is exclusively designed for food bloggers and home chefs and gives homemakers the opportunity to earn a living from home. It was launched at an all-India level on January 10.
Students who are studying and staying in PGs, away from their hometown, always look for home-cooked meals,would be one of the target customers. “To cater to such needs, FoodioTech is presenting a platform where students can connect to some of the best home chefs through the app. We are following the motto of ‘Make in India’ and ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’, by making food in India, at our own homes,” said Das.

“We are in the top 500 start-ups in South Asia. We were also the runners-up in the entrepreneurship event by MBA IIT Kanpur and StartupEd Mentored by NSRCEL IIM Bangalore. We are thrilled by such achievements of our start-up and many more to come in the coming years,” said Das.
“We are beginning with 200 home chefs in the Delhi NCR region and will slowly spread to other parts of the country. They all are getting seven sessions of training. For the convenience of the home chefs, we would not have any instant delivery but scheduled delivery. They will be catering to orders around a 5km-radius of their base,” said Das.
Their Instagram handle www.instagram.com/foodio.tech is basically an ecosystem for the food community. “We post all the latest updates about us there, such as food recipes, events, experiences of the associates, and much more information,” added Sai.
