Why No Home Delivery?

This season is the first time we came online to connect with Alphonso lovers and get authentic Alphonso across to them. Home Delivery of Alphonso was our plan right from the start, along with this initiative. However, we faced some limitations, which is why we are not in a position to give home deliveries this season. We are sorry for that. We had to take that decision just two days ago.

Alphonso needs a certain care in the delivery process and we do not have our own people in the cities to ensure this care is taken. We had contacted some agencies who promised us deliveries. We tried them with dummy orders sent to people we knew to check their service. We were unhappy with the services we got. There were cases of mangoes being changed from the boxes, or the boxes were not handled well, and even issues in money collection.

The time was short and we had to make some arrangements quick. But it was really not possible to go ahead with the people we got in the cities for delivery. We have not been able to try out all people yet with the time restriction. We were able to get a pick-up centre in Mumbai at Girgaum, but had no time in hand to get and set up centres in other parts.

Dear patrons, you have supported us in our endeavor and given us confidence in our initiative. We request you to bear with us for this year and we promise a grand arrangement next year. Please be with us!

  1. Nice initiative taken. One thing you can add to website is to show the picture of the size of the mango according to the grade. It will be really good if people can see how big a mango he is ordering, certainly I would like to see if I am a customer.

  2. We are really happy to know that the farmers get paid for their efforts and not the middleman and at the same time we get the real devgad mangoes. Its really sad to know that you were not able to get good distibuters. I stay in Borivali would be happy to offer you our full support in all the possible manner. It may be for ur deliveries also.

    1. Hi Priya, thank you so much for offering your help. We will surely get in touch with you! We will start planning for the next season as soon as this season ends!

  3. Two days ago i heard a news that we can buy Hapus online. Its good to hear that farmers directly get paid for their hardwork by keeping middleman out of pitcture. But it is so sad that the distributor is not doing their job perfectly. Looking forward to next year, to get Hapus at the our doorstep. I stay in Vikhroli. Do contact me for any help if you think i am capable of.

    Great initiative taken.
    Thanks a lot.

  4. You may also explore the option of setting up stalls or some delivery mechanism at big organisations also. Lot of employees like me want to buy products directly from farmers and want to remove midllemen who earn lot more on the efforts put in by farmer. You may please send me an e-mail with offer, I will try to put it up to our related dept.
