Swiggy Access is the first initiative under the ‘New Supply’ business line through which the company brings a variety of food to consumers by enabling plug-and-play expansion for restaurant partners in different areas. Over the next six months, Swiggy plans to introduce 40 restaurant partners to newer neighbourhoods across the country through Swiggy Access.
