If two decades ago someone told you to buy and eat organic food, you probably wouldn’t be very confident about taking their suggestion. In those times, people looked at organic food as a sham by companies to extract more money from the same products.
But times have gradually changed and just from a cultural fuel, organic food has become trending now. Especially in the last 5 years or so, the organic food industry has done pretty well and has attracted many consumers. It has happened largely due to the presence of an organic food store in certain localities and e-commerce sites selling organic food.
Both of these methods, buying locally and buying online, have their own pros and cons.
Buying locally has a lot of benefits. Perhaps the most major one is being able to inspect the food first hand and making sure that it is up to the standard. In countries like India, there still are people who hesitate in buying food online. They always have a doubt in their heads about the quality of food. For such people buying locally is the best option.
Apart from that, one can also stand to negotiate the price of the commodities one is buying. When buying locally, there is a chance that a shopkeeper might get to know you better and help you in picking out the best stuff and even give discounts at times.
But buying locally is not very convenient to most people. Many times these stores are far away from localities and it takes too much time and conveyance just to buy regular groceries. This is why some people stick to buying groceries online.
While buying organic groceries online, on has several options and several brands to choose from. But the key benefit here is convenience and timeliness. One doesn’t have to waste their time and effort by going out and buying it. With just a few clicks they can get their desired groceries delivered to their doorstep.
The problems with buying groceries online are the risk of getting sub standard product and paying a premium price. Most stores charge delivery cost from the consumer which might hike up the price a bit.
Hence, there are two methods one can opt to buy their organic groceries. One can order anything like Red poha and many other organic edibles online and get it delivered to their address. While others still may choose to buy locally because they are comfortable with it.
