Sahrdaya Technology Business Incubator has significantly aided in the development of Zaara. Moreover, the company has collaborated with CIFT, which helped it become the 1st algal-seaweed food product designer in India. Initially, its team of experts had established a Mushroom Hub at the campus prior to making their entrepreneurial venture. The startup has effectively put India at the forefront of bioengineering as it had designed photobioreactors by using micro-algae.
