India’s online food ordering and delivery platform Swiggy has raised $100m in Series F funding round led by global internet and entertainment group Naspers.

The latest financing round follows the earlier $80m investment led by Naspers.

Swiggy will use the capital to strengthen its market leadership position and further expand its supply chain business New Supply, launched last year, by introducing new services, logistics and restaurant services.

The delivery platform will continue to innovate its technology platform in the areas of data-driven self-learning systems with machine learning and artificial intelligence, which helps improve customer choice, personalisation and enhanced speed of delivery.

Naspers Ventures CEO Larry Illg said: “Swiggy has continued strong growth through 2017 and now has a clear lead in the market.

“The company’s performance is all the more impressive given the intense competition we see in the food ordering and delivery business in India. Swiggy has shown it has the ability to rise above the competition and create long-term relationships with its users.”
