As reported by food marketplace Mentta, the number of consumers purchasing domestic products online has increased significantly. "The great range that online sales channels offer to consumers gives them plenty of choices and allows them to easily go for domestic products and traders," says Luis Miguel Gil, CEO of Mentta. "Local consumption has become a growing trend and customers want to be able to help Spanish producers in this crisis in a convenient manner."
This increase in the use of online platforms like marketplaces or online shopping centers has not happened by chance. Consumers have discovered that in addition to being able to choose domestic products, they obtain great benefits with online shopping, and that is why they increasingly turn to these platforms, Mentta says. E-commerce gives customers access to certain products that are difficult to find at conventional points of sale.
According to Luis Miguel Gil, CEO of the company, "online shopping is no longer an alternative and has actually become the best option for thousands of consumers. They are now resorting to electronic sales channels daily in order to support local traders."
