Nako General Foods – Website Launched!

About Us Page

After twenty years of operations offline, Nako General Food store has transitioned online as a result of the recent and ongoing global coronavirus pandemic. In case you don’t already know, the Nako General Food store is a greengrocery, selling fresh produce, spices, flour, grains, rice, herbal products, and more from both independent and household brands located in Hackney, East London on the Ridley Road market.

Like many businesses, supermarkets, and other greengrocers, Nako General Foods has struggled but continued to support local people during what can only be described as unprecedented times. However, now almost a year into the Covid-19 pandemic, they have made the decision to expand their customer reach on a new platform, providing a safer experience to their regular customers.

 This short article will explain everything you need to know about the transition, including delivery services, our member’s club, and our commitment to you, our customers.

 

Delivery Services

Grocery shopping during the pandemic is stressful, not to mention far from safe. Ideally, we wouldn’t need to leave home whatsoever; however, this is far from realistic. The Nako General Food store helps make this transition even easier, now providing delivery services so you can have your favourite products delivered to you with a much less risk of transmission – the Nako way.

For those looking for a more premium service, we also have the members club; more on this below.
