    “Our biggest investments will be in our non-food businesses that have witnessed tremendous consumer love and growth in a short span, especially in the past 15 months of the pandemic,” said Sriharsha Majety, CEO, Swiggy.

    Swiggy has also launched several services such as instant grocery delivery service, Instamart, pick-up and drop service, Swiggy Genie and daily grocery delivery service, Supr Daily. While Supr Daily is present across major cities, Swiggy Genies was recently expanded to 65 cities in the country.
