Safal launches free delivery, health check-ups for elderly




 Mother Dairy Fruit and Vegetable Pvt Ltd (MDFVPL), which operates the 'Safal' outlets, today launched new services like free home delivery and health check-ups for the senior citizens of the Capital City of Odisha.

MDFVPL is a wholly-owned subsidiary of National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) and Safal presently has nine outlets in the city.
There is no minimum value of the purchases to qualify for free home delivery and it will reach the senior citizen consumers within two hours, provided they reside within a radius of 2-3 kms from the outlets.
Launching the initiative, Dilip Rath, Chairman of NDDB said customer centricity and farmer benefit has been core to Safal's business proposition.
"In line with the same belief, we are now launching a consumer engagement programme especially aimed towards our respected senior citizens, who constitute approximately 5 per cent of the total population of the city," he said.
"As part of the program, we will be offering a host of solutions such as free home delivery, free basic health check-ups and activation sessions to engage and make them more aware," said Rath.
The NDDB Chairman added that the service will be expanded to other areas as Safal opens more outlets.
Besides free home delivery, the new initiative also entails free basic tests like BMD, BMI, Blood Pressure and Diabetes in association with resident welfare associations.
Safal, which launched its operations in Bhubaneswar in July 2017, with the opening of two outlets, wants to take the number to 15 by opening six more outlets in the city by the end of the current fiscal, and will add 10 more in FY 2018-19, informed Sanjeev Khanna, MD, Mother Dairy. 
 





Editorial

Précis 2017
From asking his party men to ‘live a simple life and serve the people’ to taunting the BJP for its ‘crocodile tears’, Chief Minister and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik has not only become politically invincible, he seems to be so in the coming years too.
