About Dija

Dija is on a mission to make this vision a reality.

Founded by former Deliveroo executives Alberto Menolascina and Yusuf Saban, Dija combines guaranteed stock availability, an innovative UI and ultra-fast delivery through our proprietary technology, liberating customers from the drag of supermarket shopping and unavailable delivery slots.
