CEO and founder Deepinder Goyal, in a company blog, said, “We have started grocery delivery in 80+ cities across India to help with the supply of essentials.

Zomato’s rival Swiggy has also ramped up its grocery delivery with ‘Swiggy Stores‘, which was piloted on February, 2019. Both the food delivery platforms have been adversely hit due to current lockdown. Therefore, need for expansion into new business vertical was much needed.
In addition to the grocery deliveries, Zomato has also extended its paid Zomato Gold memberships by two months at zero additional cost. The new extension is valid across India, UAE, Australia, Indonesia, Philippines, Lebanon, Turkey, New Zealand, Portugal, and Qatar.
