In order to reach consumers better, we have collaborated with renowned digital channels and marketplaces such as - Souq.com, Elgrocer.com, Instashop.ae, Dukkaani, Noon.com. We also use social and digital media channels to promote our products and online store. In addition to a dedicated smart application”

Furthermore, expand the home delivery service to reach Abu Dhabi and Ras Al Khaimah,” said Al Falasi.
