It is an honor to partner with them on this journey and help them solidify their first-mover advantage in London.”
The newly raised investment will be used for the expansion of their on demand delivery service in London and UK. The proceeds of funds will also be utilized in the expansion of their UK team to around 50 employees in the next four months with addition to extra fulfillment of centre staff.
