The dairy tech startup Stellapps has announced the expansion of its digital solutions even amidst the slowdown created by the pandemic. The company has fulfilled the orders in Tamil Nadu worth Rs 20 crore in just four weeks covering 1200+ villages in the state. In addition, the company also covered 700+ villages in Bihar with its digital solutions. Stellapps is touching 2 million farmers, with its solutions across 30000 villages in India and has already made its presence felt in 18 states across the country.
Stellapps expands to 2000+ new villages
According to the press release, the expansion came in action when Stellapps started receiving inbound queries regarding its digital solutions from major dairy brands. The company has also increased the purchase order of their existing customers, resulting in an increase of the order quantities by 533%. In contrast, the order value rose by 477% compared to the same period last year. Stellapps expanded into 2000+ new villages and registered almost 2 lakh farmers during the first four months after the lockdown.
Stellapps has enabled dairy farmers to procure milk across thousands of centers in a 100% contactless manner, allowing the dairies to adhere to government agencies’ sanitary guidelines.
Ranjith Mukundan, co-founder and chief executive officer of Stellapps, said on the expansion, “Consumers are increasingly demanding hygienic, unadulterated dairy products, digitization creates end to end visibility of the supply chain and helps dairy processors to remotely monitor operations and enforce process adherence.”
Stellapps helps dairy farmers with data and analytics solutions through its tech platform ‘smartMoo’ to make informed decisions and balance their procurement. By enabling real-time remote monitoring of the procurement operations, Stellapps enable these dairies to ensure that their customers continue to receive safe, traceable, and high-quality milk. In addition, the tech platform has facilitated digital payments and hassle-free credit and insurance to marginal dairy farmers, allowing them to tide over the economic distress brought about by the pandemic.
Stellapps is a farm to consumer dairy digitization service provider, improving productivity, quality, and ensuring end-to-end traceability across the dairy supply chain. It leverages advanced analytics and artificial intelligence through its full-stack IoT platform to enable dairy ecosystem partnerships with financial and insurance institutions, veterinary services, and cattle nutrition providers to drive significant value for each stakeholder, including smallholder farmers. Through its customer-base, which includes all major private and co-operative dairies, Stellapps currently digitizes over 10 million liters of milk worth US $ 3.4 million each day and directly impacts 2 million dairy farmers in over 30,000 Indian villages.
