Spice story, a D2C chutney brand, has elevated Vibhor Rastogi from head of new product development and quality control, to co-founder and head (product development).

On Vibhor’s elevation to co founder, Soumyadeep Mukherjee said, “Vibhor has shown amazing leadership skills and operates like an entrepreneur.

We are quite excited to have Vibhor on the board.” 

On the development, Vibhor said, “ This elevation to a cofounder adds a lot of responsibilities on me which I will be happy to take on and work alongside Soumyadeep and Gayatri to take Spice story to its rightful place. From my end, I will keep on working on newer flavours, products and categories as we look to expand our product offerings. We have kickstarted 2023 with increased vigour to fulfil our promise of taking India to the world again.”
