Foodpanda Hong Kong to start delivering groceries
Foodpanda Hong Kong is adding grocery deliveries to its services from late next month.
The food-delivery service, pitched in a head-to-head battle with Deliveroo in Hong Kong, is finalising a collaboration with about 100 stores across Hong Kong to source products such as dry groceries, frozen meat and wine for customers ordering online or by app, promising order fulfilment within 30 minutes.
Foodpanda Hong Kong CEO Arun Makhija said in an interview with the South China Morning Post that the company wants to offer both its customers and its 2000-strong fleet of drivers opportunities beyond delivering restaurant meals.
Foodpanda has been in Hong Kong for five years and Makhija says the business’ growth remains “exceptional”.
