Agritech startup, Otipy has joined the ONDC (Open Network for Digital Commerce), to make farm fresh fruits and vegetables available to consumers on the ONDC Network. This integration ensures Otipy’s catalogue is visible on various apps, making it easy to discover and enabling smooth transactions on the growing Network, the startup informed.

“As Otipy onboards the Open Network, it is set to expand its customer reach, making its products available to a wider audience through popular ONDC seller apps like Pincode (by PhonePe) and Paytm apps. This move aims to strengthen the brand’s presence in Delhi/NCR and Mumbai contributing to the growth of Online Platform Demand (OPD). Moreover, it will also focus on bulk procurement directly from farmers and farmer producer organisations (FPOs), creating opportunities for sustained growth and improving supply chain dynamics,” the agritech platform said.
