Malaysia, Apr 28 2021 – foodpanda Malaysia and The Food Purveyor (TFP) have announced a landmark partnership to bring Malaysians quality food, ingredients and daily household items in even more convenient ways.
Phase one of the partnership will see users able to order regular groceries as well as exclusive Ramadan gift sets from selected Village Grocer outlets in Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru and all Pasaraya OTK outlets.
“This partnership with TFP marks a milestone in our journey of providing our users with convenience and variety at their fingertips. At foodpanda, we are constantly looking at new ways to expand our service and offerings to be able to serve our users better. The quick commerce space is constantly expanding in its importance and relevance and we remain committed to being an industry leader in this space,” said Sayantan Das, Managing Director, foodpanda.
“We are confident that our users would be able to benefit from the partnerships that we form and we look forward to continuously growing with TFP in the months and years to come,” added Das.
As the leading delivery platform in Asia and pioneer in quick commerce, foodpanda believes in leveraging technology to allow Malaysians to tap into everyday joy with the utmost convenience. A representation of this was the launch of foodpanda shops in 2020 that allowed users to order groceries and daily necessities from thousands of vendors across the nation from supermarkets to convenient stores. – in much the same way that they could for food previously.
The inclusion of Village Grocer and Pasaraya OTK outlets now significantly expands the variety of items available through foodpanda shops.
Commenting on the announcement of the partnership, Geoff King, Chief Executive Officer from The Food Purveyor said, “We are delighted for our Village Grocer and Pasaraya OTK customers to now be able to access their favourite grocery items via foodpanda shops.
Our partnership with foodpanda Malaysia is timely as we are seeing a significant increase in demand for online purchasing as we go through this post-pandemic transformation.
We hope this will enable more customers to access Village Grocer’s exceptional range of local and international delicacies which now includes over 100 exclusive lines from Woolworths Australia and Pasaraya OTK’s wide range of fresh local produce and household products”.
Village Grocer branches that are available on foodpanda shops currently include the outlets at Tropicana Avenue, MyTown Shopping Mall, i-City, Avenue K for Klang Valley and Southkey and Paradigm Mall for Johor Bahru. More Village Grocer branches are set to be added onto the platform progressively. Meanwhile, users would be able to access all three Pasaraya OTK branches in Sentul, Puchong and Medan Idaman Gombak on the app.
In light of the current holy month of Ramadan and upcoming Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration, users would be able to purchase special gift packs of Raya cookies and Kuihs for their loved ones via foodpanda shops from both Village Grocer and Pasaraya OTK.
