Licious, operated by Delightful Gourmet Pvt. Ltd, is India's leading gourmet meat brand. Headquartered in Bangalore and recently expanded to Hyderabad and NCR. Licious was launched in September 2015 by Abhay Hanjura and Vivek Gupta who sensed a huge business opportunity in offering prime quality meat products that was otherwise dominated by the unhygienic and unreliable wet market followed by frozen meat options which is an unpopular workaround for Indian consumers. Licious follows an end-to-end business based on the hub and spoke model that starts from procuring the fresh produce to processing, storage and delivery. Through this entire supply chain, the freshness and nutritional content of the meat is strictly maintained till the delivery at the doorstep of the consumer. Licious was started with the aim of satisfying customers with world class meat, fish, seafood and meat based products (Spreads , soups & pickles) .
