Foodtech giant Zomato has decided to pause the integration of its quick commerce arm Blinkit and instead focus on building "super brands." Zomato CEO Deepinder Goyal expressed that super apps have not been as successful in India as they have been in China and that Indians gravitate towards super brands. Zomato plans to maintain a separate identity for its food delivery platform and quick-commerce unit, developing Blinkit as an independent brand. The integration will primarily focus on sourcing synergies with Zomato's B2B supplies vertical, Hyperpure. Zomato's rival Swiggy has opted to integrate its quick commerce vertical, Instamart, directly into its main app. Blinkit turned contribution positive in Q2 FY24, recording 45.5 million orders during this period.
