Our Story


The bawiq story began in Abu Dhabi, UAE, on a sunny afternoon – when Raj could not bear to step out of his house under the scorching sun to buy groceries to cook his meal. Moreover, there were not any online supermarkets available at the time, which offered same-day deliveries.

“We can get meals cooked from scratch and delivered to us in no time, but groceries? Why is it so difficult to get groceries delivered instantly?”

These questions transformed into an idea – An innovative idea to develop a service that was capable of delivering groceries with a short fulfilment time, of just 90 mins.

That’s how your one-stop grocery app, bawiq, was born.

The bawiq Team strives to provide professional and unparalleled service that consistently remains a step ahead of its competitors.

We care not only about bringing innovation to the supermarket industry but also to remain committed to protecting the environment.

bawiq places an emphasis on remaining connected with our customers on multiple touch points to drive customer satisfaction.

Our team is devoted to make bawiq the next unicorn the market needs.
