At a time, when impurity and use of chemicals were rampant in food products, Meena Bazar felt the need to ensure chemical free and fresh food for the people. With this urge, 15 years ago, one of the largest retail supermarket chains in Bangladesh started its journey. Meena Bazar went one step ahead and brought organic food, that’s devoid of chemical pesticides. Currently, it operates from 17 outlets across Dhaka, Chittagong and Khulna serving the diverse needs of a wide consumer base.
It created a unique value chain that sources food directly from farmers; at their farms bio-pesticides and fertiliser are used to produce chemical free and healthy food. Today, Meena Bazar, under the banner of Gemcon Food & Agricultural Products Limited, a proud concern of Gemcon Group, produces organic foods, dairy items and herbal products.
In addition, Meena Bazar has introduced meenaclick.com, a site that facilitates online shopping. It has also introduced a home delivery service that can be availed with just a phone call, from home or work. Having started in 2002, Meena Bazar commemorated its 15-year journey in 2017. The unwavering support of customers and stakeholders has made its journey of bringing freshness into people’s lives successful.
