Techaloo : When did you launch chocoleaf? When the online version was launched?
Akanksha :Choc’o’Leaf was incepted in 2011 as a passion to design and customize gifts for friends and relatives. Soon, the word spread and we started getting attention from local players and bakers and that’s when we start looking the business on a more serious note.
The online version is launched this year, we realized that people are looking for easy way to buy organic bakery and gifting products online and moreover the spread can be wider by going online.
At the present, we are India’s 1st online organic bakery store delivering across PAN India.

Techaloo : Can you tell us about the concept of chocoleaf? Let us know something about your start up.
Akanksha :CL’s concept is to promote a healthy way of indulging in bakery products, All our bakery products are organic. We use as many organic ingredients as possible for our products. All our bakery items are made from different kinds of organic grains grinded freshly. The grains, rice and the lentils are produced by certified small farmers in India.

Techaloo : What was your vision/mission while starting chocoleaf?
Akanksha :People in India still perceive organic as a high priced product, and our mission is to change that with our wide variety organic products at reasonable price delivered at your doorstep.

Techaloo : How did you get this idea of starting chocoleaf? Let us know about things that inspired you to open such a startup.
Akanksha :The idea of Choc’o’Leaf stuck me when one fine day, I was searching a online way to order bakery items such as cheesecake, apple cakes and healthy bread loaf’s and to my surprise there was nothing!
Hence, I thought of venturing into the space, Did research in Metro cities to understand the need and found out that almost everyone is forced to eat same old unhealthy creamy cakes like black forest and sugary vanilla/chocolate cakes.

Techaloo : Have you got any kind of funding?
Akanksha :No, we don’t have any external funding from any investors, except from my husband’s support…laughs!!

Techaloo : How many products are you offering currently?
Akanksha :We have more than 200 bakery items & chocolates.
We have recently introduced a gifting product line of Health Baskets, Dessert Baskets, Cookies Baskets and Sweet Baskets.
Some of our Healthy Breads are: Whole wheat bread made of
 barley flakes / sesame / linseed / sunflower seed
, Sourdough bread, 
Rye bread
 Brown bread (wheat, barley, millet) Muesli bread, 
German breads such as vollkorn (wholemeal bread), laugen bun (pretzel bun), laugen stange (long crusty wheat roll) and laugen brezel (German savoury pretzel)
 Five types of corn bread, 
French bread like baguettes and croissants
, Ciabatta and focaccia

Techaloo : What are the top 3 products with chocoleaf?
Akanksha :It’s difficult to identify only top 3 products. Youngsters love our entire range of pastries (custard roll, apple roll & German cheesecake) Whereas, women are fond of our healthy loaf’s & dry cakes.

Techaloo : Currently you are based in Delhi, Are you planning to expand to other cities?
Akanksha :We deliver PAN India, so in a way we have presence in most of the metro cities
At the moment we are looking to increase our regular online customers and sales volumes.

Techaloo : If someone wants to order a gift from chocoleaf for his/ her loved ones, how should he/ she proceed?
