Popular online food ordering marketpalce, Foodpanda, may now be accessed for free via Safezone.
Unknown to many, Foodpanda was founded in May 2012 in Berlin, Germany. In just a couple of years, the company has grown its presence to more than 40 countries across 5 continets. The food ordering website is part of Rocket Internet under which companies like Lazada, Zalora, Carmudi and Lamudi.
Its cooperation with Voyager will bring its slew of partner-restaurants (around 1000 of them) to more people without the worry of consuming data while browsing through their site and ordering food online.
Voyager, on the other hand, is an award-winning digital arm of PLDT and Smart Communications. The company developers and operates disruptive and innovative digital platforms in the Philippines and other emerging markets. One of its big products is Safezone, a platform that allows Filipino internet mobile users to take a dip at the free side of the Internet. In the case of Foodpanda, and all the other brand partners that are part of SafeZone, they are ones paying for the data access. Last August, SafeZone drew in 17.8 million page views from over 1.5 million active registered users.
According to Voyager Innovations’ COO, Benjie S. Fernandez, “Given the reach of SafeZone, more Filipinos can now enjoy foodpanda. We are delighted to be their partner in allowing more Filipinos to enjoy their food delivery service with the added benefit of free data access. This is what the digital life is about – convenience whenever, wherever you are.”
Meanwhile, Mauro Cocchieri, foodpanda Philippines’ Co-Founder and CEO, looks forward to the prospect of gaining more users. He sees SafeZone as an entirely new segment for the online ordering business. He also added, “While I am excited to expand our market share, I am inspired more by what it ultimately means: more Filipinos will be able to experience the convenience that foodpanda offers.”
