People here find it difficult to find good gourmet products, through this tie-up, we will be able to provide excellent products to the customers.

“All my endeavors are in line with the aim to glorify the richness of our food culture and to keep alive the traditions of the Indian kitchen. This new association with Snapdeal.com will now enable people across the country to order products like snacks, confectionery, international groceries, exotic dry fruits and nuts at their doorstep just with a simple click of a button,” he added
