wholesaleneed has been attempting to alleviate major issues in India’s fruit and vegetables supply chain over the past several years. The team has managed to get into a clear leadership position in that ecosystem, especially around South Indian cities. With the current round of financing, we expect them to continue to scale rapidly, enter new cities, and enable direct relationships with farmers and shop owners across even more categories.
The team at wholesaleneed has made impressive progress and demonstrated that they can think and execute at scale. Streamlining the agricultural sector using the latest technology and supply chain, benefits farmers with higher prices and consumers with lower costs. As they scale up nationwide, they will really make a difference and impact on how farmer's market their produce.

Nilesh Kothari Co-Founder of Trifecta Capital
At Trifecta, we have always been mindful of the opportunity in F&V logistics. wholesaleneed has done a great job in delivering fresh produce to retailers efficiently while removing non-value-adding middlemen to improve the earnings realised by farmers. We are excited to help them get even bigger and better in their journey, as they use our debt to invest in fulfillment, collection and distribution centres.
Nanjappa Farmer at Maranagere
I’ve been selling all my vegetables to Wholesaleneed, and the entire process gets completed in just 20 minutes. Wholesaleneed pays within 24 hours and does not charge extra commission, which is not just convenient, but also a huge blessing to us farmers. I trust their prices and I’ve even recommended all my friends to supply to Wholesaleneed.
Ranjith Reddy Owner of Veg Mela
The prices Wholesaleneed offers are better than the market and the quality is much fresher. Previously, I’d lose a lot of time and money going to the market, and now I’m able to dedicate all my time to my shop. My customers have also appreciated my produce and my business has improved.
Dilip Papanna Farmer at Biduruguppe
I came across Wholesaleneed 4 years ago, and since then I have not faced problems like travelling to the market, wasting an entire day, or waiting for weeks for my payment. The Collection Centre team keeps me informed of the produce required for the day and I send exactly the amount required. With all this time saved, I am able to spend more quality time with my family and also grow a variety of other vegetables in my fields.
Hamzath Owner of Xpress Hyper Market
I truly appreciate Wholesaleneed’s initiative to solve the problem that is faced by business all across the country. I order from the app at night, and my order is fulfilled on time the next day. An additional advantage is that they accept returns in case any of the vegetables or fruits are defective in quality. My customer base has also increased and I’ve been able to scale up my business.
Pavan Kumar Driver Partner
Buying a transport vehicle was a risky investment but delivering vegetables and fruits to Wholesaleneed customers has helped me put it to good use. The people I work with are very interesting and there's not a dull day that goes by. Being the son of a farmer myself, I am glad that I am able to contribute to their welfare while also meeting my needs.
