"Foodcloud.in is an online market place for home chefs. Currently, we have 600+ passionate home chefs from across Delhi NCR registered on our platform. Our job, is to enable them to make their food dreams a reality. We wanted to create a marketplace ethos for them, within which they can work as independent entrepreneurs from within their homes, " Rajgarhia said.
