IBuyFresh Ware House visit and Review

You might have seen some cool skyscraper ads about in popular daily newspapers. I got an invite to visit their warehouse where they keep the stock of fruits, vegetables, groceries and other items to deliver for their online orders. It is located in Industrial Estate in Perungudi. I absolutely love the concept of their website and it is a boon for not only for working women but also for stay-at-home moms.

About IBuyFresh:

About us

IBuyFresh Warehouse:

The warehouse is well organized, clean and maintained neatly. There is no question about hygiene. The products you buy are from a hygienic and well maintained warehouse. I can confidently tell you to expect only clean and good products.


They tell that their online price is same as the price in their Kovai Pazhamudhir Nilayam outlets. However, they offer deals and discounts from time to time in their website. If your order value is less than 1000 INR, you might need to pay 30 INR as delivery charge. If it is more than 1000 INR, delivery is absolutely free. Another good thing is, there is no minimum order value.

Quality Control:

All the products are going through 2 level of QC process. They handpick the fruits, vegetables, green leaves and all other products. The groceries are checked for expiry dates. They make sure that they pick only good items. Items which are not good are rejected even while picking. Another level of QC process is there to ensure 100% quality. You can also check the items when you receive the products at your home.


They have divided Chennai into 4 hubs. They are Tambaram, Anna Nagar, T Nagar and OMR. There are different trucks which carry the ordered items for each hub. They have four delivery slots - 7 AM to 10 AM, 10 AM to 1 PM, 4 PM to 7 PM and 7 PM to 10 PM. You can choose your convenient time slot while ordering.

You can also check the earliest delivery slot in their website for your pin code. If they cannot deliver the items within their committed time, they are currently giving 10% discount on your bill value.

Order Modes:

IBuyFresh takes order through their online website, phone and Whatsapp. I like the WhatsApp mode very much .You can either type the items or just write down them in a paper and send a snapshot to them through WhatsApp.

Payment Modes:

You can pay either through cash or card.

Exciting Offers:

They provide exciting deals and discounts from time to time. When you register in their website currently, you will get Rs.100 in your wallet. When you refer your friends and relatives, you get discounts when they place their order. They also announce offers during special occasions such as Women's day. You can register here.

Workers with their assigned ordered items reporting to their manager for each online order. 
Crates are ready for loading into the truck for delivery. At present, Chennai is divided into four hubs - T-Nagar, Anna Nagar, Tambaram and OMR. They might need to increase the hubs as the no of orders are increasing day by day. Right now, they are processing 400+ orders everyday. 

Overall Thoughts:

I am quite satisfied with their quality, price and delivery process. I am going to place an order soon. You can expect a separate post about it. I recommend you to try placing your first order. I am sure that you will have a nice experience and start placing frequent orders. Save your precious time, avoid long queues and fuel charges by placing orders online through now.

I am sure they will remember you every month of their subscription even if you are far away.
