Launched in 2019 by Luther Lawoyin, Jumai Abalaka, Deepak Bansal, and Monsunmola Adefemi, Pricepally is a group-buying platform that aggregates consumer food demand and matches it with supplies directly from farmers and wholesalers. 

The food is sourced directly from farmers and wholesalers, making it cheaper and fresher than buying at retail outlets. The startup aims to cut out middlemen and save consumers money by leveraging technology to aggregate demand via a sharing model. 

Pricepally was born to bring innovation to an inefficient food distribution system in African cities. They believe in connecting farmers, manufacturers, and wholesalers directly to you, the consumer, in an innovative way that benefits all players in the value chain. 

They also want to build the next-generation food system for African cities, a platform where key players in the food value chain who add value can plug in to exchange their deals with the end consumer.

They are not just another online service provider for fresh bulk food items. They are more than that.

Using Data, Technology, and Partnerships, they have successfully built a system that enables their customers to get the best value for their money at no extra cost and from the convenience of their homes and workplaces.

At Pricepally, they believe in Sharing, and that is why they have enabled their customers with the Pally feature, which allows them to get more for less and build community spirit.

Pricepally is also a digital food cooperative platform for African cities. They enable you to buy fresh food items in bulk or share them with other shoppers sourced directly from farmers and wholesalers, making them cheaper and fresher than buying at retail.
