    “The GMV [gross merchandise value] our food delivery business achieved in 40 months, took Instamart just 17 months, demonstrating the platform benefits of Swiggy. We will double down on this to build more categories in line with our mission of offering unparalleled convenience to Indian consumers,” said Swiggy’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Sriharsha Majety in a statement.

    Instamart is Swiggy’s quick commerce arm, which delivers groceries within 15-30 minutes.
