CRII GUILD AWARDS 2016-17 (E-COMMERCE)

Confederation of Retail Industries of India (CRII) has announced that Policybazaar.com, FabFurnish.com and Foodpanda.in are the year 2016-17 recipients of the Confederation Guild Awards 2016-17 for the e-commerce space.

The Confederation Guild Awards are awarded annually by the Confederation of Retail Industries of India to leading corporations for outstanding achievements in their respective spheres of performance. The Confederation Guild Awards commend organisations striving towards the creation of national and global benchmarks across industries and geographies.

The year 2016-17 Confederation Guild awardees for the e-commerce space – Foodpanda.in, Policybazaar.com and FabFurnish.com – all have excelled in their respective operational areas and have created world-class experiences for the Indian consumer. Policybazaar.com has grown significantly since its inception and is now India’s largest insurance portal. FabFurnish.com has become India’s largest online home store e-tailing home furnishings, furniture, décor and kitchenware. Foodpanda.in, in a short timespan, has dramatically innovated the food ordering space in India and is now India’s largest online food ordering platform.

CRII’s Executive Director, Param Khanna, said, “Recipients of the Confederation Guild Awards become lifetime members of the CRII Guild, a power group of India’s best performing organisations, top-level policy makers, and most influential thought leaders. The CRII Guild, thus, creates some of the most powerful conversations between the government and the industry. India’s economy is at the cusp of a phenomenal transformation due to the online era; thus, the inception of leading e-commerce companies into the CRII Guild would significantly benefit both the government and the industry alike.

The co-founder of Policybazaar.com, Alok Bansal, said, “The CRII Guild is a commendable initiative, given that it lends a powerful voice to the e-commerce industry by presenting their views to policymakers and influencers. A platform such as this extends a two-way benefit. On one hand, it brings together think tanks from every walk of the e-commerce segment and on the other, it allows policymakers to access forward-looking information and approaches as presented by the industry experts. This is important for taking this budding industry to far greater highs.

Ashish Garg, co-founder of FabFurnish.com, said, “We feel incredibly humbled to have received the Confederation Guild Award 2016-17. It is a moment of prestige for us to be included among such remarkable brands. Our association with CRII encourages us to not only maximize our efforts to gain better results in our respective fields but also maintain the standards that keep us at par with the biggest names of the industry.

Saurabh Kochhar, the CEO of Foodpanda.in, said, “It is exciting and at the same time celebratory to have received this influential Confederation Guild Award 2016-17 for our industry by the Confederation of Retail Industries of India. We are glad to have come on the same platform, which serves the best and the most powerful minds from ecommerce/start-up ecosystem and look forward to bringing to the forefront a positive upgradation. We wish to collectively build and innovate a strong and constructive platform for the industries and government to flourish in unison.
