Karan Arora, who served as vice president and head SCM - Swiggy Instamart, has moved on from the company.

He stated, "After 3.5 years of building Swiggy Instamart, this exhilarating journey of mine comes to an end. I feel extremely proud to be associated with something that has fostered so much consumer love. Starting with 5 dark stores, 15000 square feet warehouse, 1500 SKUs to 500+ dark stores, 2 mn+ sq.ft warehouse space, 10000+ SKUs, industry first FnV processing centres and the list doesn’t end but now when I pause and look back for a moment, I’d like to express my gratitude to folks without whom this wouldn’t have been possible."

He added, "I believe e-commerce gives us a non linear platform for growth but what I’ve also learnt is that disruptions in this space can be even quicker. Quick commerce in India is one such example and it’s the never settle attitude that will keep one relevant in this space. More power to quick commerce and Swiggy. Joining hands with Karthik Gurumurthy and cofounding something exciting. More on that soon."
