UAE-based e-commerce brand launches Special Onam Sadhya Box with Pookalam in celebration of a day of festivities while also launching the region’s first preservative-free sliced bread and FTH’s Vegan Range
FreshToHome.com (FTH), an e-commerce platform launched in the UAE in 2019, is one of the rising stars in the e-commerce business. Making a name through its prompt and efficient delivery service and the excellent quality groceries and essentials it serves up to its customers, FTH currently delivers to its valued clientele across the seven emirates, with an express delivery option at affordable prices that are hard to beat.
Anushé Ramzi, Head of Marketing, FTH, says, “Our products are fresh and 100 per cent Clean Label, sourced directly from farmers and fishermen, with 0 per cent chemicals, hormones, antibiotics or preservatives.”
The produce FTH delivers is extensive, ranging from poultry, meat, fish and seafood, to fruits, veggies and bakery and pantry items, as well as ready-to-cook meals and even seasonal fare such as flowers.
Constantly thinking out of the box, the FTH team has launched its Special Onam Box this year for the benefit of the huge Malayali diaspora in the UAE. And the excellent packaging and logistics systems that the brand promises will ensure valued customers get to enjoy a sumptuous Onam feast delivered on time to their doorsteps.
“Our eco-friendly product packaging and efficient cold chain management system allows us to deliver fresh and never-frozen food at the optimum temperature, safely to our customers,” says says Arun Kumar Krishnan, Chief Technology Officer, FTH.
FTH is one of the rare e-commerce platforms to offer a money-back guarantee on product quality and taste. “We are fresh or we are free, is a line that we coined keeping in mind our calling to our valued cusomers in delivering fresh fare to their doorsteps,” says Ramzi. And that’s not all. Subscribers of the FTH VIP Program can even access exclusive deals and benefits and unlimited free home delivery with zero minimum order value, says Ramzi.
FTH has also invested in numerous certifications such as Halal, FSSAI, TUV and HACCP:
- No ammonia or formalin guarantee for all seafood
- No antibiotics or hormone guarantee for all poultry and meat
- No preservative and clean label guarantee for RTC, bakery and pantry items
All these steps, are of course helping FTH gain popularity, complemented by its strong social media presence.
FTH’s growing online community
For instance, social media handles and bimonthly emailers are used by FTH to raise awareness about regional and global topics and trends related to food and nutrition, and to share tips and recipes from certified nutritionists.
“Customers regularly engage with the brand via FTH Q&A and online recipe contests,” says Ramzi. “We are now introducing a quarterly newsletter as well, in order to keep everyone updated on our various community and CSR initiatives.”
