Social restrictions compelled by the pandemic have created enormous opportunities for food delivery apps like Zomato and Swiggy. These businesses, successful and in-demand now, experienced some initial hiccups in the first phase of the lockdown, but orders then grew exponentially as the days passed. Now Zomato is looking to raise $100 million from US investment firm Tiger Global Management to further its market size.
While the nation stays home to fight the pandemic, local services are running around the clock to ensure convenience and safety. Mumbai-based startup BBRRMM Foods has created a quick response e-commerce platform for groceries and daily food essentials to serve its citizens during these difficult times.
Amazon.com Inc is planning to rush into the proliferating online food delivery business in India this year, as per HT sources.
