The outbreak of COVID-19 has impacted the majority of the world’s population and has drastically changed the way we live. People all around the world are forced to act quickly as they gain new facts and restrictions, and are compelled to make unplanned decisions. How to safely source a sufficient amount of food, how to easily access it, and how to know if the food is safe to eat has become a significant question asked by consumers all around the world. “From where can I purchase good quality goods and groceries online in India since my movement is restricted? Is this products safe for my family and me during Covid? Can the Coronavirus be spread through food? These have been very common questions since the last few months among the entire human race.
The fear of widespread disease is causing consumers to avoid places like supermarkets and other places where people gather. Since the pandemic, people have been wary to move out of the safety of their homes. The Farmer’s markets around the world are closed. While online shopping for electronics, books, and clothes, has already become normal in our everyday life earlier, the outbreak of the virus resulted in the growth of online supermarkets. This made customers prefer to purchase their groceries online along with meat, fruits, and vegetables from online stores. The new circumstances have led to a shift in consumer behaviours, and the trend of online grocery purchase is ruling all over India especially in cities like Mumbai, Chennai, Delhi, Bangalore, Ahmadabad, Hyderabad, and Kochi. Online grocery shopping seems to be a great relaxation and solution for both consumers and producers, especially farmers who otherwise wouldn’t be able to sell their products such as fruits, fresh vegetables, meat, and dairy.
“The Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated a shift towards the more digital world. Changes we make now will have lasting effects when the world economy starts to pick up again,” said Mukhisa Kituyi, the secretary-general of UNCTAD (United Nations Conference on Trade and Development.) During the early days of the first lockdown in March, people responded to the Covid-19 crisis with much fear and anxiety, leading to panic buying of essential products and food staples. As cases continue to increase and the economy shrinks, the consumers slowly started adapting; people started shifting to online purchases. According to the survey results, the changes in online activities are likely to outlast the COVID-19 pandemic. Most respondents, especially those in Kochi and Bangalore said they’d continue shopping daily essentials and grocery online in the future. Fifty -nine percent of the consumers polled that they now shop online more frequently, thus making the biggest shift to digital.
