Zomato Claims Its Food Delivery Biz Is Nearing Complete Recovery In Delhi & Mumbai
The food delivery sector has recovered to pre-Covid levels in various markets and in some cases grown beyond the pre-pandemic numbers led by affluent locations, food delivery aggregator and search platform Zomato said in a report on Wednesday.
“The food delivery industry continues to show strong signs of recovery. It is steadily growing to pre-Covid levels, with the overall sector clocking over 85% gross merchandise value (GMVs), up from close to 75% last month,” Zomato chief executive Deepinder Goyal wrote in a blogpost.
Among the larger cities, while Delhi and Mumbai are nearing full recovery, metros such as Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Chennai are still behind the curve. Region-wise, Eastern India has seen the best recovery, with Kolkata, Patna and Jamshedpur having recovered completely, the blogpost said.
