This 8.8, the country’s first homegrown all-in-one lifestyle delivery app celebrates turning 2. PICK•A•ROO’s mission is to provide urban consumers a way to go about their lives stress-free and conveniently. For the past 2 years, it has been growing its list of premium brands to become the most trusted delivery service in the Philippines. Fueled by becoming 2x faster and 2x better, PICK•A•ROO has found that the #1 customer pain point in grocery shopping is stock inaccuracy. Enter, COOP, which is the only one-stop grocery with real-time inventory and a 99% stock guarantee in the market.

"Pickaroo is the first Filipino-made super app and we want to provide the best online shopping experience, especially for grocery. COOP has the most complete grocery selection and with our technology, we can now offer the most complete and the most accurate grocery experience in the country," added co-founder Kevin Tan.  Founded on a simple mission: To be the only one-stop grocery with real-time stock updates, and the greatest assortment of the freshest goods, affordable for everyone.
