Online food delivery service foodpanda, in collaboration with retail brand Shwapno, have officially launched an on-demand grocery delivery service through its app across the country, according to a press release.
Customers will be able to get frozen food, dry food, fresh fruit, vegetables and daily household necessities like soap and shampoo from Shopno, which will be delivered at their doorsteps through foodpanda.
In compliance with the latest directive from the Bangladesh Government on pandemic coronavirus, foodpanda launched ‘pandamart’, so that customers can conveniently access any essentials they need from the comfort of their homes.
According to Ambareen Reza, CEO foodpanda Bangladesh, “We are trying to speed up the roll out across Bangladesh as soon as possible because we want the community to know that they can rely on foodpanda in this time of crisis.”
Sohel Tanvir Khan, business director for Shwapno said, “Our employees are working dedicatedly 24/7 maintaining all safety, health and hygiene guidelines. In addition to this, we are taking all necessary steps by providing all essential protective gear to our employees to make sure they stay safe while serving its customers, with food and with some exceptions of lodging as well."
The new service that was piloted last week is made available on the already existing ‘foodpanda’ app in Google playstore.
The service has started in major areas in Dhaka, Chittagong and Sylhet and will be rolling out across the rest of the 25 cities that foodpanda is in operation.
