Speaking to Business World regarding the startup, Saikat Bagchi, co-founder of First Eat, said, “It’s pretty simple yet an extraordinary fact that our health pivots on eating right. Yet we all invest more on reactive services and curative measures, but often take for granted the most basic and easiest proactive approach of eating right – that can potentially eliminate any need of curative approach for our health. Information and knowledge hold the key towards better health planning, and this is the paradigm shift in people’s approach that we are trying to facilitate.”
