If you searched “fresh food in Ibadan” on Google and were disappointed not to find online grocery stores selling fresh food, that’s about to change. PricePally—the online grocery store for fresh food and household supplies—now operates in the famous city with brown roofs.
Benefits of buying fresh food from PricePally in Ibadan
1. No market runs
Market trips are physically draining and eat time. PricePally takes away market stress by delivering food to your doorstep. PricePally also provides food carriage beyond your doorstep, especially if you live in a multi-story building or can’t carry heavy objects.
2. Access to quality food
In food lore, fresh foods provide the healthiest source of nutrients. However, vendors influence the nutrient level and safety of fresh foods. For instance, the Foundation of Investigative Journalism (FIJ) recently uncovered an abattoir that sells dead and sick animals to unsuspecting meat buyers. The FIJ story explains why you should buy fresh foods from government-accredited sources like PricePally. They follow food safety guidelines in every food stage (sourcing, procurement, warehousing, and delivery), preserving the farm-fresh nutrients you need.
3. Cheaper than local markets
Food inflation is almost at a 27-year high; therefore, it’s financially understandable if quality food at local markets is beyond your purse. PricePally, whose ethos is providing quality food at affordable prices, has food prices for every wallet level. We source food items directly from farmers, making them up to 40% cheaper than local markets.
4. Convenient bulk buying
Bulk buying is one of the best ways to hedge against the rising food inflation in Nigeria. But what if you don’t have enough to buy food in bulk? We built Pally (aka community shopping) to split food prices to buy quality food in bulk or small quantities at pocket-friendly rates.
