Transform your food market segment with digital technologies. Meet the needs of modern customers accustomed to ordering online and provide them with maximum convenience while buying and selling food.

B2B Food Marketplace

(Suppliers/Distributors and Customers)

The demand for B2B food marketplaces is growing fast. Operators need to have a place where they can connect with distributors, compare prices, and order online without numerous phone calls and paperwork. The U.S B2B e-commerce market along with the food industry is expected to reach USD 20.9 trillion by 2027, which makes B2B food marketplace development an appealing business opportunity.

B2C Food Marketplace

(Suppliers/Distributors and Customers)

Restaurant-to-consumer food ordering platforms comprise the largest segment in the industry. Revenue in the Online Food Delivery segment is steadily growing and is expected to result in a projected market volume of US$182,327m by 2024. 70% of food digital orders take place in restaurant-branded apps or websites, and the remaining come through third-party platforms. Restaurant apps and platforms appeal the most to users who want to personalize their order or collect rewards.

Third-party order delivery platforms

Third-party platforms such as UberEats and GrubHub are still on the list of 20 most-used apps. Users love to look up items there, check prices, and conveniently order from any food service available. Also, such platforms offer equal opportunities even for smaller operators, allowing them to take part in this massive sector without big investments. Therefore, developing a third-party platform for ordering food online is proven to be a prospective business venture.
