It is undeniable that Malaysia’s agribusiness industry has faced huge challenges following the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has affected the business operations across the supply chain including the production, distribution, and retailing of agricultural products and the food industry.
In response to this, the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Industries (MOA) is partnering with Dropee to ensure that the distribution of food such as rice, meat, fish, vegetables, and fruits across Malaysia is in control and adequate throughout the Covid-19 period.
Dropee’s B2B eCommerce marketplace allows producers across the country to continue selling their produce to wholesalers, retailers, and consumers during the Covid-19 period.
Dropee’s initiative with the MOA provides an alternative sales channel for these producers and suppliers to sell their products online in bulk. Through Dropee’s platform, sellers are also able to access logistics, financing, and insurance support from Dropee key partners.
“We are very excited to partner with the MOA to transform Malaysia’s food supply production and distribution businesses online. Since 2017, we’ve been helping many businesses across Malaysia to digitally sell their products in bulk. My team and I are confident to take on this mission in successfully helping our nation’s farmers, fishermen, and suppliers to go-digital,” said Lennise Ng, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Dropee.
Other than just a platform to list their produce, Dropee’s team provides hands-on guidance to suppliers from setting up their online B2B store to marketing their products.
