Zomato co-founder Gaurav Gupta had said during a virtual conference said, “Last year, when we did grocery, it was a need of the hour for our customers. People were not using food delivery and needed grocery in their homes to be able to cook all the food at home. And we, because of our network, enabled that quickly to serve our customers. Now, we’ll be coming back to see, as an attempt of experimenting to see how we can build this hyper-local part of the business.” The service will be available via Zomato food app. Also Read - Ola, Uber rides to online food delivery: New GST rule to bring these changes from Jan 1
