Bangladeshis opt for online groceries rather than food delivery

March 27, 2020

Online grocers in Bangladesh have been inundated with orders as Covid-19 cases spread. Online retailers like Chaldal.com and Meena Bazar have reported unprecedented sales. The two companies said they are unable to cope with the increase. Food delivery platforms like Foodpanda in the meantime has reported a drop in sales. The number of daily orders in the Bangladesh, India and Pakistan markets had dropped by 15% for Foodpanda as more people are cooking at home given the economic uncertainty ahead.
