 Manipur chief minister, N Biren Singh, has introduced “MOMA Market” a mobile app that enables residents to order fresh vegetables and have them delivered to their homes, The Sentinel Assam reported.

The app was free to download, and it would be available on Google Play Store soon. The app’s iOS version will be released soon.  Under supervision of chief minister N Biren Singh, Manipur Organic Mission Agency (MOMA), Department of Horticulture and Soil Conservation, Manipur, launched the application to make fresh vegetables available for daily consumption and to reduce the distress sales of farm produce during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown.

In order to avoid loss of vegetable produce and the spread of COVID-19, MOMA has been assigned to work in the area and channel farm products to consumers via home delivery. 

MOMA will collaborate with Farmers Producer Companies (FPCs) to harvest vegetables from different farms. It will then be transported to Sanjenthong and other locations for cold storage and warehouse. These bulk goods will be distributed to licensed selling firms for retail packaging. Finally, the consumer’s MOMA Market order will be shipped to their doorstep.

Meanwhile, representatives of local clubs in Imphal East and Imphal West have been invited by MOMA to conduct home deliveries in their jurisdiction without violating COVID-19 SOPs. Owing to a shortage of capacity and funding, the organization has been unable to satisfy a high demand for fresh vegetables and fruits delivered to homes.
