“With this launch, we will also increase MSME suppliers and offer a pan-India supply chain integration to regional market brands,” said Adarsh Menon, senior vice president and president of Flipkart Wholesale.
Flipkart Wholesale announced on Wednesday that it is expanding in the grocery segment. The service will initially be launched for retailers in Gurgaon and will cover other parts of the country over the next few months.
The company claims that by subscribing to the service, customers can access a wide variety of regular groceries and personal care products in more than 350 brands.
To ensure faster delivery, Flipkart Wholesale will operate a 1 hundred square meter fulfillment center at Haryana’s Bilaspur. The company, which started its operations in September with offers in the fashion segment, said that it has provided more than 6,500 employment opportunities across the country so far and that it will continue to create employment this year as well.
“With this launch, we will also increase MSME suppliers and support regional grocery brands through a pan-India supply chain integration,” said Adarsh Menon, senior vice president and president of Flipkart Wholesale.
In July last year, Flipkart announced the launch of Flipkart Wholesale to serve its large charter network across the country. Walmart India was involved in Flipkart Wholesalers in a corporate restructuring effort. Flipkart offers to supply the renters by leveraging the Walmart India expertise (cash and transportation business) that has been serving tenants for more than a decade.
