A grocery delivery startup active in Italy and based in Milan, Macai defines itself as a “full grocer in the q-commerce space“, i.e. a fully digital supermarket characterized by a wide selection that aims to reach an offer of 7,500 products and a delivery to the doorstep in a few minutes (maximum 30), thanks to the widespread presence of dark stores in city centers. Macai is today present in Milan, Turin, Bologna and Modena and foresees other openings mainly in Northern Italy by mid-2022 in medium-sized cities – not covered by competitors.
