“EasyRoutes has made everything so much smoother for us, from the integration with our Shopify orders to being able to sync data with our other apps, like AirTable.”


The founders behind DabbaDrop have always had a passion for food, but they were never completely satisfied with the takeaway options available to them. They were disappointed with the low-quality food, minimal vegetable options, and the pile of plastic that seemed to accumulate in their bins with each order. They longed for a better way to enjoy their meals.

That's why, in 2018, they decided to take matters into their own hands and start their own business. They created DabbaDrop, an innovative company that aims to provide zero-waste, guilt-free, plant-based meals inspired by heirloom family recipes from all over South Asia. With a rotating menu that takes customers on a culinary journey from Kerala to Pakistan, DabbaDrop offers a unique and delicious dining experience.

In addition to the delicious food, DabbaDrop is also committed to reducing its carbon footprint. The entire menu is plant-based, requiring less land and water and producing fewer carbon emissions. The pre-ordering system means that the kitchen always knows exactly how many meals to prepare, reducing food waste.

To further reduce waste, the food is packaged in reusable steel dabbas instead of single-use plastic containers. The dabbas arrive chilled and can be heated in the oven for 30-40 mins resulting in a delicious, hot meal. When finished, the empty dabbas are collected during the next delivery, completing the zero-waste cycle.

DabbaDrop is also committed to eco-friendly delivery methods. All of their deliveries are made by riders on pushbikes, e-bikes, or zero-emission vehicles, reducing their carbon footprint even further. Since starting their business, they've saved over 200,000 plastic containers from being used and traveled over 50,000 km for emission-free deliveries.

After getting frustrated at manually planning their deliveries, DabbaDrop found Roundtrip’s EasyRoutes for Shopify which handles everything from optimizing their routes to keeping customers informed with order tracking pages and timely delivery notifications.

“EasyRoutes has made everything so much smoother for us, from the integration with our Shopify orders to being able to sync data with our other apps, like AirTable.”
