Online grocery shopping that is B2B (business-to-business) involves businesses rather than consumers buying fresh, packaged, and frozen food items like cereals, drinks, vegetables, fruits, meat, seafood, poultry, dairy, and a number of other cooking essentials. A business-to-business transaction takes place between two businesses, like a wholesaler and an online retailer.

Only 4% of B2B transactions take place online at the moment, with Amazon Business accounting for at least USD10 billion in yearly sales. 49% of transactions are still completed manually over the phone, by fax, or during in-person meetings with account managers and sales representatives. The remaining transactions take place using e-procurement and electronic data exchange (EDI) systems, antiquated B2B transaction-specific technologies. Brands, makers, and small manufacturers are harder to reach because they are a smaller audience and have historically been slow to adopt new technology. In addition, B2B buyer/seller transactions are complex (e.g., require payment financing, invoicing/approvals, inventory management), and requirements vary from vertical to vertical. For these reasons, there aren't many B2B aggregators.

However, post COVID-19 pandemic is the B2B Online Grocery market witnessed a significant change within the market conditions. Pre-COVID-19, lesser than 8% of the B2B market dealers showed significant interest towards a digital alternative.
