In the spirit to deepen business ties and expand digital footprint across India, Reliance Industries’ Jio Platforms and Facebook owners – Mukesh Ambani and Mark Zuckerberg are launching a grocery delivery app using Meta’s WhatsApp messaging service.
According to the partners, the collaboration would enable shoppers in India to browse through JioMart’s groceries, place orders and make payments without leaving WhatsApp.
Meanwhile the partnership between the companies dates back to 2020 when Facebook invested almost $6 billion for a minority stake in Jio Platforms.
Speaking on the development, the Chairman and Managing Director, Jio Platforms, Mukesh Ambani said the company vision is to propel India as the world’s leading digital society, adding that he and Mark shared the same vision.
“When Jio Platforms announced our partnership in 2020, Mark and I shared a vision of bringing more people and businesses online and creating truly innovative solutions.”
Reliance Industries is expanding the group’s e-commerce platform, while building its mobile infrastructure across India. Reliance Jio Infocomm—the country’s No. 1 mobile carrier with over 380 million users—plans to invest 2 trillion rupees ($25 billion) to roll out 5G services in the world’s second most populous nation, Ambani told shareholders on Monday.
