Epermarket Shanghai – Your imported grocery expert

Shanghai Living

Updated on:

Epermarket is your imported grocery expert that carefully selects products and brands you miss, from a place you can trust.

To guarantee our commitment to quality, each year we renew our ISO 9001 quality management certification and test our fresh products with SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification and testing company. In addition, our warehouse has 5 different temperature-controlled storage rooms to make sure that every product is stored in the appropriate conditions in order to optimize its quality.

Whether you are looking for fresh produce, specialty cheeses, pantry favorites or even home care products, we have everything you need. Choose from over 5,000 imported products at diverse price ranges and have them delivered directly to your doorstep.

But we’re not just about groceries. For example, through our green initiative, EperGreen, customers are able to recycle with us by collecting and giving their recyclables to our drivers, change our packaging to a more durable and reusable transport solution, and reduced the number of plastic bags we use in exchange for more eco-friendly recycled paper ones. Furthermore, in 2016, we raised 50,000 RMB to donate to the Million Tree Project, an NGO who promotes environmental awareness by planting trees in Inner Mongolia. Not only that, as of June 2019, we now offer new 100% biodegradable and compostable bags for over ninety-five of our fruits and vegetables as an effort to further reduce as much plastic as we can.

We have also launched their nationwide delivery service via 3rd party services, which means that imported food lovers from all over China will now have access to our high-quality products. Shopping with us couldn’t be simpler with our convenient payment options, flexible delivery times, free same day delivery and accessible international customer service every day. We make grocery shopping even easier – and also your life!

Jean Yves Lu is the founder and CEO of Epermarket.

After living and working in France for many years, he decided to move himself and his family back to China. Upon returning, he became genuinely concerned about food quality and safety in China and felt he had to do something about this. He was dissatisfied with what was available on the market, and soon found out that he was not alone. Back in France, he gained a lot of knowledge about the Food & Beverage industry, so he was determined to find a way to provide expat families like his own with safe, healthy, and affordable food and products.

Epermarket was started by Jean Yves in 2011, with only 17 employees and 300 items. Today, Epermarket rapidly grown into a full scale operation with over 100 employees, a website in 4 different languages, and over 8,000 of the best products from around the world.

From the very beginning, Jean Yves has always insisted on always being the very best at what we do. We only work with suppliers who not only have the appropriate business licenses and certificates, but a respect for quality and safety as well. Our team works hard to ensure the quality of our products and storage conditions are always at their best and are certified by ISO 9001, one of the most widely known quality certifications in the world.

Online food shopping in China

2020 has been a great year for E-Commerce as many people were forced to move online. Our goal therefore was to convince them that when traditional retail reopened, that they had no need to convert back and that online shopping was their future.

Whilst we will continue to face many more challenges throughout the remainder of the year, our strong team and valuable expertise will ensure that the hurdles become opportunities and we can continue to progress forward.

Epermarket’s clients are people who care about food. Whether it’s the safety of the products that is most important, or the quality imported product from their home country, the thing that binds them is that they care about food.

Epermarket have employees from 10 different nationalities

On Christmas Day 2019 we moved to a bigger and better facility, massively increasing our capacity.
Our warehouse facility has 7 different temperatures, as so many products have varying degrees of optimum temperature.
In May 2020 Epermarket launched nationwide deliveries, finally servicing all of China.

In the past 12 months our team is extremely proud of the work we have done. Constantly adapting to the many challenges put in our way, and overcoming each and every one. There will be more hurdles to follow, we are sure of that, however our team will continue to rise to them yet again.
