A number of new online delivery services have opened in Kolkata. Sit back and get all your groceries – from baby products and gourmet delicacies to daily necessities – delivered to your doorstep.
Get Groceries Delivered At Your Doorstep From These Shops
Salt N Soap
One of the few sites to offer personalised shopping assistance, Salt n Soap has more than 10,000 products which means it can be your one-stop-shop for all your daily necessities. Salt n Soap also delivers fresh fish and meat. If you are not tech savvy, don’t worry since you can place orders on the phone or online. We loved the Loyalty Program which gives you perks if you are a regular customer.
Dely Bazar stands out for having one of the lowest minimum orders at just INR 200 making it ideal for your small one-off buys. What’s more, there are no delivery charges. You should check out their variety of fresh fish that come straight from the water and not from a freezer.
Operating in multiple cities across the country, Grofers promises the lowest prices or your money back. The site is user friendly. The thousands of products they offer are segregated into categories making it easier for you to browse through the options available. We loved the Best Value staples which are packaged by Grofers themselves.
An extension of the multi-city supermarket, the Spencers app is easy to use. You can always double-check the store if you want to test the product before trying it online. Unlike the stores, the site doesn’t have as much variety but it definitely guarantees quality. The delivery radius of the service is limited and might not include your address so it’s better to check the app before making your purchase. Look out for the offers tab which has discounts on lots of food items.
How can we leave out Big Basket when talking about groceries? Pick from a range of groceries - fresh produce, kitchen essentials, gourmet cakes and bakes and all the other essentials you always need around the house. Everything is delivered to your doorstep at a time convenient to you.

Sufal Bangla, in collaboration with Plaite, is delivering groceries, vegetables and fruits all across the city. Also, find avocados, olives, babycorn and mushroom besides the daily sabzi and ration.
Bhumisuta Organic is another option for your weekly fix of organic food. This initiative facilitates the farmers practising organic farming to sell their produce for a handsome remuneration, and at the same time keeps the price of the products within the reach of middle-class people. They sell various types of rice, flour, spices, edible oils, preservatives, green tea, fruits and vegetables as well as livestock (fish/meats). Ask them to add you to their SMS list - they will send you weekly updates and prices.
