With the aim of empowering customers to buy their desired groceries and daily essentials, and receive delivery within 30 minutes, Foodpanda has launched Pandamart – a convenient platform for ordering daily necessities online.
Although the pandemic has vastly increased consumers' dependency on online shopping, the majority of such platforms are still confined within a limited variety and stock of food and grocery items, according to a press statement.
"Furthermore, the sudden rise of demand has often led to delays in delivery, adding to customers' dissatisfaction and leaving a gap in the market for a well-organised and efficient service. With the launch of Pandamart, Foodpanda aims to redefine the shopping experience for consumers in Bangladesh by delivering whatever they need in as fast as 30 minutes from the thousands of original and genuine products they have in their inventory," it read.
Regarding Pandamart, CEO of Foodpanda Bangladesh, Ambareen Reza said, "On-time delivery drives better collaboration with your customers, ensures reliability of delivery and most importantly customer loyalty."
"Customers expect you to meet the promised delivery date. It is important to set the right expectations with your customers and meet them. With Pandamart, we aim to do just that," added Reza.
With wide varieties of over 3,000 items, ranging from regular household staples to baby products and cleaning supplies, Pandamart has original and genuine products of all large multinationals – such as Unilever, Nestle, RB, and reputed local companies – in its stock.
Combined with the best deals and offers, and a large array of items to choose from, Pandamart is committed to providing a better online shopping experience every time and meeting rising demand, read the statement.
In addition, the launch of Pandamart has also created new business opportunities for vendors, and employment opportunities for riders and warehouse staff to join the platform, as the demand for delivery of daily necessities increases.
Foodpanda started its Pandamart venture in Dhaka and other major cities. The service will gradually roll out to the rest of the country.
