As the company grows, it is also trying to create value for everyone in the ecosystem, he added.
“With 1.8 lakh delivery partners, we are creating jobs and skill-building opportunities for many in India. We are developing Zomato Kitchen hubs in smaller cities in India to drive growth for our restaurant partners,” Goyal said.
