Delivering high quality produce
Produce quality and food safety teams on-site at each store in the region, perform strict quality checks before storing food in areas that are appropriately temperature controlled. Once an order is prepared, items are reviewed one final time before being sent for delivery.
Going bananas for…bananas?!
It’s always great to see people ordering fruits, and data shows that bananas are the consistent favorite fruit across the region – followed by oranges and apples!
Why are tomatoes the slowest vegetable? Because they can’t ketchup!
However, not in this case, tomatoes reign supreme under the vegetable category on talabat Mart, with cucumbers and potatoes not far behind!
Favoring water above all else!
Drinking water is easily one of the best ways to stay hydrated and healthy, so it’s no surprise that water is the most popular item on talabat Mart, along with bananas and chocolate milk.
An ongoing debate, salty or sweet?
Our region has a sweet tooth – and talabat Mart unveiled that most markets love indulging in sweet over salty snacks, with only one market (looking at you, Bahrain!) opting for the latter.
In addition to offering fresh produce, talabat Mart also carries a number of newly-introduced vegan products!
Customers looking to add more plant-based ingredients in their recipes can now order organic coconut or almond flour, sugar and oil!
