We would be happy to share our impact on how we have built the local delivery in Tier 2/3 market in India which is expected to grow for the next 500M people going online. We have launched milk tech with milk Subscription model for better customer stickiness & brand loyalty.
With India’s population and internet data consumption increasing at 400 %, we think it’s just at the nascent stage and want to make the most of this opportunity in Tier2/3/4 cities of India. There has been a huge demand in Tier2/3/4 cities for delivery services and supply has been zero in India.
