About Us

WHO ARE WE?

Town Essentials is your 100% vegetarian local e-grocer specializing in fresh fruits, vegetables, regional ingredients and artisanal goods. As Bangalore’s pioneers of home delivery, we have been bringing high-quality produce straight from the source to your doorstep since 2002. We believe that food is at the heart of every community; our goal is to help you discover and share the best of what India’s farms and kitchens have to offer.

WHY ARE WE HERE?

The last decade has seen the world embrace the idea and benefits of sustainable and healthy eating, as people become increasingly conscious of what they consume and where it comes from. For many Indians, vegetarianism has always been a way of life, but a growing community now want to take things a step further - to assure that what they eat is good for them, the environment, and the people who produce it. Town Essentials is a product of this philosophy. We show our commitment to these ideals by keeping our practices as ethical and green as possible. We use recycled packaging, opting for reusable glass bottles and keeping plastic to a minimum. We do our bit to encourage the domestic organic movement by creating a marketplace for its produce. It is a work in progress, and we welcome your suggestions and ideas on how we can go greener!

HOW DO WE DO IT?

We go to straight to the source. Being in the business for 11 years has enabled us to build firm, long-lasting relationships with our vendors. We started out as, and continue to be, ingredient suppliers to hotels, which means the volumes we deal in allow us to grade produce and select only the highest quality for our customers. Years of experience in setting up a distribution system have played no small part in helping us service the burgeoning population of a fast-growing city like Bangalore. We cover an 80km radius on a day-to-day basis!

WHERE ARE WE GOING?

Our dream is to connect food lovers across the city and strengthen this fledgling community. We are interested in leveraging our technological and infrastructural capabilities to create platforms for local vendors and makers to showcase their products and offerings. We also run our own kitchen: authentic pickles, jams and powders made from scratch form another unique feature of the world of Town Essentials. We pride ourselves in taking a personal interest in our customer’s needs, going out of our way to source specialty ingredients native to particular regions.

We are Town Essentials, the foodie friendly food store!
