Zomato, which had a stellar D-street debut last month said that the revenue growth was largely on the back of “growth in our core food delivery business which continued to grow despite the severe Covid wave starting April”. Adjusted revenue grew by 26% quarter-over-quarter (q-o-q) to `1,160 crore in Q1FY22. Adjusted revenue includes revenue from operations and customer delivery charges. Last week, the firm delivered a billion orders.

“It took us six years to get to this milestone and we hope it takes us much less time to deliver the next billion. The fact that over 10% of these billion orders were delivered only in the last three months makes us confident about getting to the next billion much sooner,” founder & CEO Deepinder Goyal said.

The India food delivery business reported a record gross order value (GOV), several orders, transacting users, active restaurant partners and active delivery partners during the quarter. India food delivery GOV grew by 37% q-o-q to Rs 4,540 crore in Q1FY22, Zomato said.
