FMCG firm Nilgai is planning to raise up to $10 million in equity investment to finance ongoing expansion plans in metro cities.

"We will be looking at raising a further $7-10 million to finance our ongoing expansion plans," said, Abhay Jaiswal, CEO, Nilgai Foods.

The company is also planning to take its Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) brand PICO Express to all major metros like Delhi and Bangalore in the next few years.

"Our FMCG products are currently in Delhi and Mumbai, but we plan to expand that reach rapidly over the next couple of years to reach over 10,000 retail stores across India," Jaiswal added.
