Manama: Talabat, the region’s leading food and grocery delivery application, yesterday announced that it will extend its free delivery campaign throughout the Eid Al Fitr holiday.
The campaign, which started in March, waives delivery fees based on a customer’s proximity to a restaurant, Talabat said in a statement.
It was launched throughout the kingdom in an effort to support local businesses and encourage users to stay at home. Talabat has also waived registration fees during this period to support local businesses that are new to e-commerce.
This is in line with Talabat’s commitment towards enhancing precautionary efforts to limit the spread of coronavirus.
According to Talabat, the initiative contributed to increasing its services footprint through signing partnerships with more than 300 Bahraini large and small businesses in all sectors, including Home Electronics, Ramez Markets, Alosra Supermarkets, Al Jaser Factory company, Alzaeem Butchery, Alia Flowers, Alo Basheer, Naseef Restaurant, Café Bateel and many others who benefited from the drive and offered their customers free delivery services.
Talabat has also signed an agreement with the Health Ministry, whereby they deliver medicines for patients with chronic diseases to ensure their health, safety and comfort.
In addition, an agreement between abattoirs accredited by the Animal Resources Agency and Talabat enabled customers the option of ordering fresh meat. This service is the first of its kind in the region and is expected to be implemented in other neighbouring countries.
Talabat managing director Hesham Al Saati said: “We are proud to proactively launch services that add value to our customers and partners through strategic partnerships with the government and private sector.
“In addition to the various health measures taken by Talabat such as promoting online payment to reduce the exchanging of cash and the launch of Talabat’s contactless delivery, we have also worked closely with the Covic-19 taskforce and the Health Ministry to conduct tests on more than 93 per cent of our fleet to ensure the safety of our partners, customers and riders,” Mr Al Saati said.
“The confidence that our partners and customers have placed on us has gone beyond food – from flowers to electronics, and from cosmetics to medicine. We are proud of the kingdom’s efforts in combating Covid-19 and maintaining business continuity and the important role we play in connecting businesses to customers in Bahrain.”
