Consumers in Guwahati are looking to place online orders of vegetables and other essentials due to Covid-induced restrictions, said an executive of NE Fresh, a Guwahati-based e-commerce Company.
“As vegetable markets have remained closed due to Covid-19 restrictions, and standalone vegetable shops are allowed to open only till 11 am in Guwahati, many people have chosen online mode to purchase vegetables,” he said.
“We have seen a surge in demand during the last few days,” he added.
“In the last two weeks, we have witnessed about 20-30 per cent spike in orders compared to the normal situation as markets remained closed and many customers are avoiding visiting vegetable shops,” said an official of Freshdo App.
