Thailand, May XX, 2020 - Zilingo today announced a partnership with one of the largest FMCG companies, Unilever Food Solutions (UFS) to expand its range of food essentials on B2B commerce site, Zilingo Trade. The collaboration stemmed from the urgent need of huge online demand for food and essential items due to the government-imposed COVID restrictions across the country.
Wholesalers, businesses, and consumers can now source UFS brands such as Knorr, Lipton, and Best Foods at wholesale prices on Zilingo Trade. As an official wholesale distributor for UFS, we are offering the products at a fair price point and will also host exclusive promotional offers for customers nationwide.
Apart from the consumer products category, stocks of healthcare essentials like masks, hand sanitizers, and cleaning solutions have also been catalogued to meet the need of the hour. Zilingo Trade aims to level the playing field for all businesses to scale through a fair, transparent and connected supply chain in these difficult times.
“Zilingo comprehends the gravity of the situation and is stepping up to meet the diverse needs of our B2B customers. We have partnered with Unilever Foods Solution with an aim to expand our wholesale platform and increase our FMCG product categories,” says Poompong Tancharoenphol, Country Manager of Thailand, Zilingo.
With this offering, businesses in the hospitality and F&B industries are also expected to procure FMCG products at wholesale prices once the restriction is relaxed.
Whilst Zilingo remains focussed on its fashion supply chain, the decision to reintroduce FMCG products on its platform was taken to support and aid local businesses, “Zilingo Trade allows small businesses easy access to products at wholesale prices so that they can take advantage of the cost savings and sail through the COVID crisis,” adds Poompong Tancharoenphol.
Zilingo is working towards further diversifying its FMCG product catalogue and remains committed to leverage its supply chain platforms to connect B2B customers with wholesale factories.
Zilingo is a technology platform that powers the entire fashion supply chain. It was founded in 2015 by Ankiti Bose and Dhruv Kapoor with a vision to use technology to put responsible and efficient business within everyone’s reach. The fashion industry is dominated by a select few - favoring only those with social, human and financial capital. At Zilingo, we believe the future of fashion belongs to everyone. By using smart, technology-led solutions to bridge the gap between creators and producers, we’ve reimagined the fashion supply chain to make it fair, connected and transparent for all.
