From Rs 5 Lakh to Shark Tank Deal: BluePine Foods Momos Becomes the !st Deal of the New Season!

In the bustling streets of Delhi, amidst the honking rickshaws and vibrant street food vendors, lies a story of entrepreneurial grit and delicious success. BluePine Foods, the company behind the beloved Yangkiez Momos, started with a simple yet powerful desire: to bring the authentic flavors of Darjeeling momos to every corner of India. Today, it stands as a testament to the power of passion, perseverance, and a well-timed bite on Shark Tank India.

From Bootstrapped Beginnings to Shark Tank Spotlight:

The journey began in 2016, fueled by Aditi Madan’s longing for the momos of her hometown. With just Rs. 5 lakh and a dream, she embarked on a mission to create convenient, preservative-free, and delicious frozen momos. It wasn’t easy. As a bootstrapped venture, every step was a hustle, but Aditi remained determined.

In 2021, a twist of fate led her to the stage of Shark Tank India. Walking into the den with her signature momos, she not only captured the hearts of the Sharks but also secured the first-ever deal on the show, bagging Rs. 75 lakh in funding from Ashneer Grover, Vinita Singh, and Aman Gupta for 18% equity. “Shark Tank India turned out to be a perfect fit,” Aditi said, realizing the value of mentorship and collaboration in the digital age.

Yangkiez: Bite-Sized Delights with Big Aspirations:

Yangkiez, christened with Aditi’s maiden name, embodies her passion for Himalayan cuisine. Today, it offers a wide variety of momos, including veg, chicken, pork, and paneer options, as well as spring rolls and other delectable snacks. Their deliciousness transcends physical stores, reaching homes across India through online platforms.

Yangkiez believes in using fresh, high-quality ingredients and traditional recipes to create momos that are not just convenient but also burst with flavor. They meticulously source their ingredients, ensuring freshness and authenticity in every bite. This commitment to quality has earned them a loyal customer base and rave reviews.
