Fooddoo app that brings home-made food to market in Coimbatore

Segway-like vehicles were also used by the police to keep an eye on the large crowd on Marina Beach.

"In Coimbatore, where we are only one week old, we manage 50 meals a day," says Saurav Mukherjee, co-founder of the fooddoo app. He says that while there are many apps for food delivery, what sets them apart is the health factor. “We are moving towards health. We don't want our children to eat in the restaurant every day. "With the mobile and web-based app, which is currently active in Chennai, Coimbatore and Tiruchi, customers can order homemade food.

The possibilities are many. From a purely vegetarian meal from Kootu and Poriyal to a simple fish curry and rice, you can choose from a menu that has been put together by home cooks in the app. "We call them Fooddoo mothers. We have registered 4000 mothers with us. 600 of them are active, ”says Saurav. There is also a Jain food option, eating with less oil, without Garam Masala and so on, ”he explains

Saurav, like core families in which single mothers or both parents work, find it challenging to cook and consume healthy meals. Unhealthy eating habits are an important factor in lifestyle diseases. "We want to change the way food is prepared and delivered."

The Fooddoo team selects do-it-yourselfers who like to cook. You can stay at home and earn income by doing something you are good at. A Fooddoo mother from Chennai says: “I finish the orders for lunch by noon. That suits me because my child is at school during these hours. Since I take care of my child and manage my home, it is not an option for me to get out to deliver the meals. I regularly receive orders for my vegetarian meals and breakfast items such as wheat dosa, puttu with red rice, Godhuma Upma, rotis and parathas. A delivery person picks up the prepared food from home. “The mothers have the option to turn off the app when they can't take orders.

You can use information

As soon as a customer places an order with a Fooddoo mother, the order reaches their dashboard. She then confirms the order and prepares the food. As soon as the meal is ready, it is picked up and the customer can track the status – from the order confirmation to delivery. “Our delivery boy network is trained to check consistency, quantity and quality and also to help with packaging. That is why our slogan is: mothers prepare, deliver friends. We deliver food in biodegradable boxes. "

According to K Shanmugasundaram, founder of, there is a seven-step quality and verification process to validate the home cooks and their kitchens. Fooddoo kitchens are FSSAI certified. "We also make surprise visits to their kitchens." The tech-driven company continues to motivate the mothers.

“There is robust technology, and now we can scale at will. We currently deliver 200 meals in Chennai, ”says Saurav, who brings out the top sellers. “The vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes, lemon, coconut and tomata rice, rotis and sauces are very good. Some of the app users also buy festival Palakaaram from the mothers. "

The next big plan is funding and scaling. “We can serve 40,000 meals a day. We have sensitized the cooks to using millet to prepare diabetic-friendly food that is tailored to certain diets such as paleo, low-carbohydrate fat, lots of protein, etc. Children who settle abroad subscribe to us to provide food for their elderly parents. "

Another mother, who has been a Fooddoo mother for three years, says she likes to experiment. “In addition to South Indian food, I now also make teplas and specialize in Moong Dal Halwa, milk cake (which I learned from my mother-in-law) and my own recipes such as Thinai Paayasam. Now that my children are grown up, I have a lot of time. I order vegetables and provisions as needed. So far there have been no negative comments. “As she speaks, the deliverer comes and takes her meal order away Arachu Vitta Sambhar. inji rasam, Beans paattani poriyal and Kalandha Kootu.
