Daalchini, India’s first 24X7 instant food vending machine, found in a recently conducted study that employees working in Industrial Units & Medium and Small Enterprises (MSMEs) consumed over half a million Samosas and Kachoris in last six months.
Daalchini recently surveyed the food consumption pattern of consumers in various settings such as schools, hospitals, and Industrial plants.
Food has always been a personal choice and occasion driven, and understanding the food preferences is crucial to providing excellent service and restocking the food items according to the particular food choice. It was amazing to find the results of the study.
In hospitals, the peak sale time was found to be around 8 A.M., and glucose biscuits, followed by orange juice and water bottles, were the most consumed items in the last six months.
The most surprising and exciting finding emerged from the students in the colleges and student hostels across North India, where the peak sale time was 4 A.M, and the students prefer indulging in early morning snacks, including Maggie, followed by Nachos, Thumbs Up, and Chocolates.
This pattern differs for the employees working in industries and manufacturing plants, where it was observed that the employees usually consumed according to their shift timings with multiple peak sales times at 3 A.M., 7 A.M., and 12 P.M., and the most preferred food choices were Samosa and Kachori, which accounted for over half a million in six months followed by Bhel- Chiwda and then by Frooti and Maaza.
Prerna Kalra, the CEO of Daalchini Technologies, said, “Distribution is always about the right availability. We were able to tailor the menu for workplaces, schools, hospitals, hostels, etc and provide the RIGHT PRODUCT, at RIGHT TIME, in RIGHT QUANTITY to our customers with our AI-driven supply chain and serve the customer better, while collating it centrally for efficiency. This data-driven approach helped us achieve higher than 80 NPS from customers.”
