December 8, 2016: Food and beverage industry have changed a lot in the recent. There are many startups and they have completely changed the way Food and Beverage industry was seen. Here are 5 start ups which have changed the industry:

1. Zomato
Well, there is no doubt that Zomato tops the list. It is now more of a norm to check out the Zomato ratings before trying out any food joint. Zomato has become the Google for the food industry all over India.
It is now operating in 23 countries; Zomato is used by millions every day to decide where to eat. It is an online database for restaurants.
Zomato from time to time introduces new services to its clients. It is also aiming to launch a rider tracking app for the restaurants as well as for the users.

2. FoodPanda
With its unique polices it has gained huge popularity among general masses. It has almost disrupted the food industry with its offers and discounts to the customers.
When the app gives a discount to its customers, the app pays for it. Therefore, the restaurants could not sell their foods and beverages at their own rates but, the orders only went in through the app.So those who didn’t tie up with the company miserably suffered because of it.
FoodPanda is now operating in more than 50 cities across India. In a very short time, FoodPanda has become a lifeline for the foodies, who can simply order from the app and the food will be delivered to their doorstep.

3. Swiggy
The concept of Swiggy is similar to that of FoodPanda. They have just started in 2014, and it is now one of the very few startups which does not have a minimum order value for home delivery. Apart from the concept of FoodPanda it has just added logistics. It makes sure there is no untimely delivery. Swiggy is doing really well under the Food industry.

4. NomNom
This is just a year-old startup in India and is doing really well. The reason being they took hold of one of the major problems of the restaurants.
NomNom simply provides a centralised Order Taking Solution to restaurants. They just forward the calls to their call centre agency.
The convenience which they provide is highly benefitial to the restaurants. They answer almost 99% of all order-taking calls where it is just 60-70% when the restaurants manage it by themselves.
More calls answered, means more orders taken which in turn gives more revenue.

Founded in 2014, Swiggy claims to have 50,000 restaurant partners

Swiggy, domestic online food ordering and delivery app, on Tuesday launched Stores – a platform where one can order groceries, health supplements, meat and other daily amenities to be delivered at users’ doorsteps.

“Swiggy Stores extends the option of ordering food from nearby restaurants to anything from any store across your city,” Sriharsha Majety, Co-Founder and CEO of Swiggy, wrote in a blog-post.

Stores would connect people to every store, retailer or brand — both online and offline — and deliver goods within an hour, Majety claimed.

“We’re taking first step by launching Stores across Gurugram and will deliver from over 3,500 outlets across the city. We’ve partnered with over 200 stores in categories like fruits and vegetables to florists and pet care stores,” Majety said.

Swiggy has partnered with brands like Apollo Pharmacy, Health HK Art, Guardian Pharmacy, and online meat ordering platform Licious and Ferns N Petals.

Swiggy will use the funds to bring more quality food brands closer to consumers.

“We are launching Stores in beta for now, while we fine-tune the service to make sure it meets the standards that we, at Swiggy, hold ourselves to,” Majety said.

The platform, made available within the main Swiggy app, has also been designed to act as a directory of popular stores and lists bestsellers, the post said.
