We are a Team super-passionate about Fish & Seafood. Almost a decade back we took Mumbai Supermarket business to a different level by adding Non-vegetarian sections in ‘Spinach’, the chain we had built for DHFL group. And then the story continued at Easy Day Stores, whose non-veg sections became destinations for meat and fish lovers in North India.
Jalongi gets the A-Team back together, this time to redefine the way people will buy fresh fish and sea food. Deep knowledge of the category from sourcing to processing and handling and our passion is what we bring to the table to ensure that you and family gets fresh, clean & pan-ready fish delivered at home.
