As part of Snoonu’s corporate social responsibility efforts, the company will support local companies affected by the Covid-19 pandemic by adding the Love Local Bar to its App.

Qatar’s leading tech startup, Snoonu, is pleased to announce its contribution to the national ‘Love Local’ Initiative, aimed at supporting local companies impacted by the pandemic, as a part of the company’s social responsibility commitment towards Qatar.

The ‘Love Local’ initiative is a line-up of programs and activities to help small businesses recover from financial losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The intent of the campaign is to build awareness of the importance of shopping and dining local to support small businesses and community organizations which are the backbone of Qatar’s economy.

Snoonu’s active participation in community services activities continues with the ‘Love Local’ Initiative that started on 8 September 2021. As part of its contribution, Snoonu has added an option on its app for ‘Love Local’ dedicated to showcasing local offers, events and dining options. The icon bar and banners have been placed on the app and on all Snoonu social media platforms, to promote all local merchants’ services and products.

Hamad Al-Hajri, Snoonu CEO, said “We are thrilled to be an active participant in the Love Local Initiative, and to contribute towards supporting the sustainable development of our local economy. I invite all companies and organizations to take part in this outstanding national initiative. Every individual can also contribute by buying, promoting and selling local products”, he added.

Ali Alsaadi, the founder of Zest, Qatar’s first keto-friendly restaurant, commented: “As an ethical business committed to the local community, Snoonu remains true to its core values, showing an immense support to the SMEs like Zest in these difficult pandemic times”.

Khaled Al Rayes, founder of “Go Home” , a fresh and healthy products café, added: “ The economic downturn caused by the pandemic was truly difficult for us and local businesses in general, and support by a successful Qatari platform like Snoonu is truly invaluable and demonstrates that Qatar’s business community preserves its spirit of solidarity at all times”.

Snoonu is Qatar's home-grown success story that aims to be the first local Unicorn company. With over 150,000 users, Snoonu plans to expand and diversify its offering by adding new features and services to its platform, with a goal to enter international markets, including the Middle East and CIS.

Engaged in building a resilient economy in Qatar, Snoonu continues to support more than 2,300+ of its partner merchants with lower commissions, supporting them in the difficult context of the pandemic and offering a seamless online shopping experience to keep the community safe.
