The new price tag is set to compete with giants including Disney’s Hotstar, Netflix, and Times Internet-backed MX Player in the South Asian market.

An Egyptian foodtech startup, Brotinni, has secured a $600,000 Seed round led by Innlife investments to expand “dark butcher’s” network.

Founder, Dalia Abou Omar, confirmed the news funding in a press statement on Monday.

The foodtech startup claims to offer a platform where customers can order meat and poultry products with same-day delivery.

Ripples Nigeria gathered that Brotinni recently launched its first warehouse to serve its clients across Cairo, marking the completion of its “dark butchery” model.

“Through Brotinni, we are set out to shape the future of the meat ordering sector and transform the user experience by taking full control of the cold chain and supply chain operations behind the meat delivery process,” Dalia Abou Omar explained.

Brotinni said that it plans to use the fresh funds to expand its dark butcher’s network, expand its logistics team and invest in its technology.

Trivia Answer:Template

A template is a file that serves as a starting point for a new document. When you open a template, it is pre-formatted in some way.

For example, you might use the template in Microsoft Word that is formatted as a business letter.
