Indian agritech company eFeed has raised USD 1 million in funding from venture capital firm Omnivore. eFeed will use the funds to strengthen its r&d operations, expand its farmer network, and for recruitment. The company provides nutritional supplements and advisory service to livestock farmers to help them tailor feed with local ingredients. “By empowering farmers with localized and customized feed advisory supplemented with our premixes, eFeed is improving cattle health, milk output, and farmer incomes while lowering reliance on expensive compound feed and medicines,” said eFeed co-founder Kumar Ranjan.
