However, with an appeal for #stayhome to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, you might be worried about buying vegetables and fruits at the supermarket. To overcome this problem, you can use these following online shopping apps and sites to buy vegetables, fruits, and other essentials.

This app provides feature for sending message and call to make it easier for you to discuss with Personal Shopper, such as replacing an empty stock. HappyFresh also allows you to ask a trained Personal Shopper to choose the product according to your wishes. Do not worry, the product chosen will still have the same quality at a good price.

For the sake of riders’ health and safety, HappyFresh equips them with masks and hand sanitizers. Riders are also asked to carry out contactless delivery, which means, they will maintain a safe distance when delivering your groceries.

HappyFresh works with several well-known retailers such as Transmart, Farmers Market, Lotte Mart, HERO, Super Indo, and others to choose from. There are also stores that also work with HappyFresh such as Drink Corner, Natural Farm, VINES, BEST MEAT, Emme Florist, Wine Cellar, etc.

Sayurbox applies the concept of a fresh produce platform and focuses on cutting the distribution chain. Consumers who want to order have a certain time at least two days in advance, so that the vegetables or fruits that are sent are fresh.
