With a rapid increase in COVID-19 cases across Maharashtra, people fear to venture out from the safety of their homes. Since vegetables and fruits are an essential need for every household, a majority of the population is opting for doorstep delivery as a safer option to fulfill their needs. However, given the COVID-19 pandemic, customers are seeking safety in terms of hygienically handled food. Fraazo – a Mumbai based Consumer Agri-Tech startup has introduced a new feature- ‘Society Stores’ to reduces multiple handling and unhygienic treatment of our foods to deliver health and happiness to their customers’ homes. Under this farm-fresh fruits and vegetables are directly supplied to registered societies/apartments, thereby reducing touch points across the supply chain.
To set up a ‘Society Store’ in any society/apartment, users can log on to its society-registration weblink: http://society.fraazo.com/ enter details of their society, and after an internal viability assessment, Fraazo establishes their store in registered societies as per time and day of their convenience. To make the process of buying fruits and vegetable hassle-free, it also offers a ‘Pick-up’ feature on its application, wherein customers can control the entire process of buying fruits and vegetables – right from choosing the order, to make the payment and even picking it up through the Fraazo App – delivering a no-touch experience! The brand ensures Farm to Customer Doorstep Delivery is executed within 18hours, to keep the promise of fresh products to every kitchen.
Mr. Atul Kumar, CEO & Co-Founder, Fraazo, Consumer Agri-Tech said, “Fraazo is a quality-focused and hygiene driven platform for farm-fresh food to every kitchen. Realizing the importance of providing hygienic and quality food in the COVID-19 lockdown, we are innovating with our ‘Society Stores’ to service people who are left with no options for trusted essentials.
