According to an official, the project will be implemented in all areas of Bengalulu if successful.
With the launch of the new home supply service by Horticulture Producers Cooperative Marketing and Processing (Hopcoms) on Monday, August 30, Bengali people can now order and deliver products such as fruits and vegetables from Hopcoms to their doorsteps. The project is currently being piloted for three months at the Hopcoms branch in Lalbag, Bengal. This branch meets all online orders in the southern part of the city. According to an official, the project will be implemented in all areas of Bengalulu if successful.
To order, one must download and install the HOPCOMS Online app from the Google Play Store on their phones. Once the app is installed, customers can choose the fruits and vegetables they want from the catalog and place an order. Hopcoms said in a press release that customers will be able to place their orders by 4 p.m.
Although the price of the products is the same as the Hopcom store, additional shipping costs must be paid by the customer. Hopcoms has joined a private limited company, Code Catalyst, to carry out its packaging and delivery. However, the packaging space and digital balance are provided by Hopcom, and the packaging is managed by Hopcoms.
The new project was inaugurated by Karnataka Minister of Agriculture Ni Munirata.
“With this new initiative, we intend to provide more markets to farmers. We can also provide good quality products to the public; A Hopcom official said.
