Acting on the growing need for sustainable living, AKIHI laid a greater emphasis on contributing to the environment by offering its products in visually-appealing glass bottles. With Minimalist packaging featuring pastel colors, and glass bottles, the brand is designed to be gender-neutral.
The funding round was led angel investors Virender Sharma & Devendra Dagar.
