Shaker Dixit, the Founder and CEO of Amealio said, “In today’s hyper-connected world, feeling less connected to our local communities is a glaring paradox.

our platform’s capabilities, expand our reach, and continue innovating to bring neighbors closer together. We are grateful for the support and look forward to making a significant impact on local communities.’’ Our aspiration is to take this moment across to places outside of India in the year 2025.
