We are glad to have Danish Investment Fund, IFU on board too. We hope all of us together can take Saraf Foods to great heights. The funds raised will bolster our upcoming project.

Deepa Hingorani, Vice President IFU said, IFU, through its Agribusiness Fund, is very pleased to partner with an experienced company such as Saraf Foods. The Company uses state of the art technology for food processing and we look forward to being a part of their journey to emerge as an even stronger player in the industry,
