Flipkart, India’s homegrown e-commerce marketplace, announced the strengthening of its grocery supply chain infrastructure across the country. Through this effort, the company will strengthen its capabilities to provide its customers safe and seamless access to order daily essentials through quick and contactless doorstep delivery.
Towards this effort, Flipkart plans to step up supply chain infrastructure for its grocery business and add over 8 lakh square feet of space through 5 new fulfilment centres over the next three months. With this additional infrastructure, the marketplace will bring the ease of online grocery shopping to more users across the country.
Flipkart Grocery offers over 7,000 products across 200+ categories – ranging from daily household supplies, staples, snacks & beverages, confectionery, personal care, and much more. Flipkart’s grocery offering is backed by an intuitive user experience through voice-enabled shopping for groceries, credit offerings and open box deliveries.
With the current grocery fulfilment centre network spread across Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad, among other cities, Flipkart serves close to 64,000 orders a day. This has also created thousands of direct and indirect job opportunities, leading to a boost in employment and the economy. Sustained growth in Flipkart’s grocery business is giving a boost to the local food processing industry, resulting in the massive support to the Indian agriculture and small & medium farmers.
