ONDC Food Delivery Orders Cross 5 Lakh in 2024

ONDC Food Delivery orders cross 5 lakh and cover more than 200 cities. With a strong network comprising over 100,000 restaurant partners, 12,000 Kirana stores, and 5,000 farmer-producer organizations (FPO), the platform is currently facilitating over 200,000 transactions daily.

Shireesh Joshi, Chief Business Officer of ONDC, informed Business Line that even expanding into new markets and product categories, it is fortunate to see strong growth in existing categories. In March of last year, the platform processed approximately 4,000 food orders, whereas this March, the number is greater than 500,000 orders.

Furthermore, the network now boasts three times the number of available restaurants. Over the Holi weekend, there was a notable 10-15% increase in food orders compared to the previous weekend.

With the combination of grocery and food sales, we processed slightly over 3,000 orders in March of the previous year. However, this month, the food category alone is approaching 600,000 orders, marking a 200-fold increase. In the grocery sector, we have fulfilled over 200,000 orders this month, representing a 100-fold increase since March of the previous year,” stated Shireesh Joshi, Chief Business Officer at ONDC, in an interview with FE.

In recent months, leading companies including Domino’s, Rebel Foods, McDonald’s, Burger King, and Biryani by Kilo, among others, have joined ONDC either through direct integration or via buyer applications.

Additionally, due to the growth in mobility and food delivery services, there has been an increase in transactions across various categories such as fashion, electronics, health and wellness products, and home and kitchen items, among others. As a result, ONDC is currently experiencing over two lakh transactions per day.

In response to a question about the addition of new categories in the upcoming fiscal year, Joshi reported that significant advancements have been made in the grocery segment, a particularly challenging category. Currently, there are over 5,000 FPOs actively participating in the network, offering a variety of unique products.

Besides, the company is on the verge of introducing financial services. As a result, there is an expectation for the expansion of products and services within both new and existing categories, as well as the growth into new areas.
