FoodCo Nigeria Limited, a diversified consumer goods company with interests in retail, quick service restaurant, manufacturing and entertainment, has announced the unveiling of FoodCo online, Nigeria’s first true online supermarket.

The e-Commerce platform integrates both  shopping and payment portal, as well as an extensive variety of stock, taking the in-store experience online for customers who prefer to shop from the safety and convenience of their homes.

Marketing Manager of FoodCo,  Solomon Huesu  said the launch of the online supermarket opens up a new vista in the Nigerian consumer retail space and underlies FoodCo’s commitment to driving innovation in the space to meet the lifestyle demands of the contemporary shopper.

He said: “FoodCo is always innovating its business to fit the realities of today’s shopper. The FoodCo eCommerce platform has been in the works and with the challenges imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, we thought it necessary to move the launch date forward to ensure that our customers do not experience frustrations in shopping for their favourite groceries, meals, household items and other essentials.

“The online supermarket offers a seamless customer experience that complements our in-store offering, in addition to delivering on the FoodCo guarantee of best quality at an affordable price. It also boasts the most extensive range of supermarket products across all categories, giving access to thousands of top quality products from our stock to users on the platform. This is currently unparalleled in the country and that makes us the first true online supermarket in Nigeria,” he added.
