Grofers Changed To BlinkIt, Comes Forward With New Delivery Patters and Schemes

Date:

Grofers is an Indian online grocery delivery service. It was founded in December 2013 by Albinder Dhindsa and Saurabh Kumar and is based out of Gurugram, India.
The Mumbai-based online grocery startup, Grofers has rebranded as Blinkit to focus on India’s fast-growing quick commerce space.

Grofers competes with the likes of Google-backed Dunzo, Swiggy’s Instamart, and Mumbai-based Zepto in India’s rapidly increasing quick commerce market. The company will become the latest Indian startup unicorn after raising $120 million from Zomato and Tiger Global.



The new upsurge in the funds will help Grofers top the competition created due to the pandemic. This investment was made soon after Tata Digital acquired a major share in Big Basket and invested another $200 million in the firm’s capital.
