Digital food community Food Talk India has raised $500,000 in seed funding from a private investor.
The investment will allow the company to launch Food Talk Plus, a hyperlocal dish discovery platform.
Food Talk India has evolved from an invite-only Facebook group to a community of food lovers that leverages technology and data science with its own technology team.
The company has 400,000 followers across social media platforms and has signed a deal with Star to become the exclusive digital partner for MasterChef Australia season 7 in India.
Food Talk India is leveraging this reach to become a strong platform in the digital marketing space for lifestyle and food brands.
