foodpanda launches delivery for groceries

The platform is offering free delivery on all shops throughout November.

foodpanda is expanding its on-demand delivery services to groceries, flower shops, and convenience stores, according to a press release.

Customers can now buy and have their purchases delivered from over 1,000 retailers nationwide such as Hao Mart, The Fishwives, Caltex Starmart, and Mothercare. In addition, brands like TigerNow, Wine Connection and The B.I.G Wine Company will now accept orders after 10:30pm.

This initiative leverages the food delivery platform’s hiring of 100 engineers in Singapore to boost its backend technology, with a goal to hire up to 300 by the end of the year. Last year, foodpanda also launched its first dine-in restaurant in the Lion City.

To celebrate the launch of its new vertical partners, foodpanda is offering free delivery on all shops throughout November, with first time users receiving a $10 discount.
