The leading grocery and supermarket chain of Dubai Emirates Cooperative Society has made a strategic alliance with the online fulfillment service providers Talabat, Careem and Dukkaani.
The collaboration is to bring a convenient and contactless shopping experience to consumers across Dubai and also under the UAE government’s direction to keep the pandemic in control and get the business into a pre-COVID stage.
According to the alliance agreement, the fulfillment partners will showcase 4,000 products of the Emirates Cooperative Society and deliver them to the consumer within 60-90 minutes from purchase. Eventually, the number of products will be increased in response to demand and feedback from consumers.
Early this year, the Emirates Cooperative Society launched its online shopping app ‘Emirates Coop’ to give Dubai customers the ease of shopping and this collaboration will increase the standard of its services.
The General Manager of Emirates Cooperative Society, Mohammed Yousaf Al Khaja says “We have tied up with Talabat, Careem and Dukkaani to ensure speedy delivery and provide more convenience to our customers. We believe this will help us better serve the evolving needs of our loyal and new customers.”
Al Khaja also acknowledged the Dubai Economy for their support and efforts in easing this strategic alliance.
Talabat is the largest online food ordering company in the middle east, founded in Kuwait. The Managing Director of Talabat UAE, Muhammad Yildirim said that “As a brand, we are focusing on speed, affordability and variety and look forward to offering customers of Emirates Cooperative these services.”
