Indian online food delivery market to hit $8bn by 2020New Delhi, Dec 21 (IANS): There is good news for Zomato’s restaurant partners as the food-tech unicorn on Monday said it has entered into a strategic partnership with fintech lender InCred for “hassle-free” credit facilities.

The food delivery industry was one of the worst-affected segments during the pandemic with its Gross Merchandise Value (GMV) falling short of the pre-COVID levels.

“While the food delivery business has made a strong comeback, overall food service industry is still far from reaching pre-Covid levels. We have been working on many initiatives to boost its recovery and one such is our partnership with InCred,” Rakesh Ranjan, Chief Sales Officer, Zomato, said in a statement.

“It will help our restaurant partners with easy, risk-free credit options designed to achieve their operational and bottom-line goals.”

The InCred-zomato tie-up aims to extend financial assistance to cash-strapped businesses for meeting their business growth and working capital needs.

InCred offers tech-driven credit services to its customers that are time-efficient and cost-effective.

“The COVID-19 outbreak has led to a sharp decrease in footfall, order volume, and bucket size within the food services segment. In this context, platforms such as zomato have emerged as a true game-changer by enabling physical businesses to recover seamlessly,” said Saurabh Jhalaria, CEO (SME Business), InCred.
