Jumbotail is solving an important problem of organizing food and grocery ecosystem in India through technology, data science and design.

Inability to access food and grocery supplies and receive payments in a timely way

The marketplace in recent times has been changing with respect to the supply chain and how payments are received. With technology, the world has become faster and the rate of transactions has sped up. Small scale retailers of food and grocery items often referred to as kirana stores face the challenge of being able to service their customers in the changing food and grocery ecosystem due to the lack of capacity to be compliant with these technological advancements.
