Every morning, a runner from Ommafoody goes to the wholesale market armed with a list of customers’ requests.

Ommafoody’s policy is, only fresh produce for customers.

Sometimes Saddam goes to the market himself to make sure his customers get only the best.

The groceries are brought back to the Ommafoody office in Seri Kembangan to be washed and packed.

Saddam and his staff clean all the chicken and seafood before it is sent out – an extra feature which sets Ommafoody apart from other grocery delivery services.

Meanwhile, other workers weigh and pack chillis according to customers’ orders.

It’s not glamorous, but sharing office space helps keep everything running according to schedule.

Saddam does a final check of the bills and invoices before the groceries are sent out for delivery.

A check list helps them keep track of orders.

Then, it’s off for delivery in special insulated bags to keep the groceries fresh until they arrive at customers’ doorsteps.
