Zomato co-founder Gaurav Gupta moves on

His departure comes days after Zomato exited its grocery delivery & nutraceutical business.


Mumbai: Gaurav Gupta, one of the key executives of food tech platform Zomato has moved on from the company.

Gupta, who joined Zomato in 2015, was head of supply at the food delivery company. In 2018, he was elevated to the position of chief operating officer and later designated as co-founder in 2019. He had played a crucial role in the company's landmark initial public offering (IPO).

“I am taking a new turn in my life and will be starting a new chapter, taking a lot from this defining chapter of my life — the last 6 years at Zomato,” Gupta told executives at Zomato in an email, as per the company's blog.

His departure comes just days after Zomato exited its grocery delivery and nutraceutical business. The company had ventured into the nutraceutical business last year with the launch of health and fitness products.

Zomato CEO Deepinder Goyal confirmed Gupta’s exit on Twitter. “Thank you Gaurav Gupta—the last six years have been amazing and we have come very far. There's so much of our journey still ahead of us, and I am thankful that we have a great team and leadership to carry us forward,” he wrote.
