The food tech industry has drastically changed India’s eating habits and many people now prefer to order online instead of dine out. As we prepare to move into 2021, this sector is sure to gain more attention and interest. While we expect more news from the two unicorns of space, Swiggy and Zomato, the focus will be on bringing in more supplies this year. It will also be interesting to see if the small food tech companies enter space and create more waves.
