Kolkata, February 12, 2018: Foodpanda, India’s leading online marketplace for food delivery today announced its plans to invest INR 400 crores in the country. The investment would focus on scaling up technology, ensuring seamless experience for partner restaurants, users and riders across all the metros and other key cities in the country.
