Wadi Grocery, a home delivery grocery app, has announced plans to expand into the UAE in 2019, following its success within the KSA region.

Wadi Grocery, the grocery app of e-commerce major Wadi.com, has promised customers a 2-hour delivery time from order to doorstep.

With a customer base of over 15 million on Wadi.com, the grocery app was launched earlier this year in Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam. The app today boasts more than 2000 daily orders from a catalogue of more than 20,000 products that include fresh produce, dairy products, personal care brands, household supplies, and kitchen essentials.

Pratik Gupta, co-founder and managing director, said, “By virtue of working in KSA for the past 3 years, we realised that the retail climate poses some unique challenges for the end consumer. From limited stocks, traffic jams, parking issues, the hot weather, consumers face a host of issues when they step out for their daily/weekly groceries. We recognised the gap in the market and decided to introduce the Wadi Grocery App to ensure that our customers get everything delivered at their doorstep within two hours.”

He further added, “We received an overwhelming response from our existing Wadi customers, which enabled us to swiftly expand to top three cities of the Kingdom. Our excellent logistics network across more than 50 cities and world class technology helped us scale quickly, and deliver on our promise of 2-hour delivery along with the widest range of assortment for the region. As a result, 50% of the orders being generated on the app are solely via organic word of mouth. This kind of tremendous growth makes us confident about our future plans.”
