We used to buy vegetables from supermarkets. But this COVID-19 pandemic changed it. As we lived differently, we also buy differently. In real time, the crisis reshaped the buying habits of consumers and introduced a new way of buying essentials.
Normal vs. New Normal for Vegetables
The Normal Setup
Displays in the groceries made us realize that they are might be older ones. In addition, lots of hands have handled them – farm, consolidator, middlemen, display rack, cashier then finally to you.
The New Normal Setup
Now, we can experience a fresher version of vegetables. From the farmers directly to the consumers houses. You are assured that every produce are natural and did not go under “beautification process” such as Tawas or other chemicals.
The Shift to Digital Channels
To protect you and your family more, more people prefers to buy essentials online. NO need to leave your respective houses plus the convenience of cutting expenses such as gasoline or fare when buying from brick-and-mortar stores. For example, to buy vegetables, all you need to do is to order online from Manamay.
One of the best ways to recover faster to the economic impacts of the pandemic is helping one another. While it is nice to buy imported goods, it would be a little nicer to buy first from our local sellers. From food, products and crafts. Locals, especially farmers feel more valuable and appreciated for all their hard work because they are being supported well.
Surely, food on your tables are healthier, fresher, cleaner from (virus contamination with less hands that is has passed through). Not only have you ensured the quality of food for your families, you also help the back liners of our economy.
