With this acqui-hire, the company shall be able to serve its consumers better in terms of variety, quality of food and seamless operations to have the delivery and packaging intact.
As per the deal, 48East founders Joseph Cherian and Nabhojit Ghosh will join the Swiggy team, with the former acting as the COO of Swiggy’s New Supply business line.
