Living Food Co. continues its commitment to sustainability by using electric vehicles for 30% of its delivery fleet across Bangalore

Mobility and Food - two seemingly disparate sectors are undergoing one of the most transformational shifts, with far-reaching implications for the way we live. Leading the way forward, India's leading online marketplace Living Food Co. is using electric vehicles for their delivery fleet in Bangalore to integrate the future of food with the future of mobility. Currently, 30% of Living Food Company’s last-mile logistics is powered by a homegrown electric bike company and they aim to increase the use of electric-powered vehicles to 100% over the next year. 


Speaking of the current industrial food supply chain, it is extremely complex and is plagued by inefficient supply management and wastage. With extreme weather ramping up globally, farmers are facing the brunt of climate change in agricultural practices around the world. Food loss and wastage contribute up to nearly 30% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Such inefficiencies are massive contributors to global warming, and merit urgent action and innovations that are climate-positive.


Living Food Company solves these issues by delivering insanely fresh, high-quality food while producing minimal food waste. From freshly baked bread to vegetables harvested the same day of delivery, they are setting the standards for food that is better quality and lower in carbon footprint.

 

They source locally from world-class food artisans that are equally conscious about the environment, setting off a cascading ripple effect and building a marketplace that is geared extensively towards sustainable and environment-friendly practices. Therefore, achieving the twin goals of delivering food that is good for you and right for the planet earth.


As part of their endeavour to constantly look for better solutions and innovate, Living Food Co. has partnered with an Indian startup that is redefining urban mobility. By providing Electric Micro Mobility Vehicles (MMVs) through a user-friendly mobile app, such startups are enabling fully sustainable first and last-mile connectivity. By solving challenges in urban mobility, congestion, pollution, and sustainability - the EV partner is all about creating a positive social impact.


Speaking about the initiative, Akash Sajith, CEO of Living Food Company says, “Our goal here is to fundamentally change the way people think about food. We are always integrating new ideas and building innovative pathways to shape the future of food for India and the World. What Living Food started a few months ago will stay relevant for years to come. That's what 'sustainable' means — it works and it matters for everyone.”


This integration is significant on two accounts, it heralds a new integration between the Future of Food and the Future of mobility, thereby providing a holistic 360 degree take on what a sustainable future might hold. With fuel prices rising astronomically, this also helps economies of scale for the Living Food company, simultaneously helping them achieve their target of a sustainable future. And with both companies harnessing the power of technology to help consumers reduce their carbon footprints and significantly reduce carbon emissions, this is a window into the future.
