Zomato, the perpetually loss-making company, has made its first-ever net profit for the April-June quarter. Zomato recorded a net profit of Rs 2 crore after tax for the quarter ending in June 2023, compared to a loss of Rs 186 crore in the year before.

However, the food tech company's expenses still outweigh revenue and it is losing money in its operations.

  • Zomato CEO Deepinder Goyal shared the uplifting news of becoming profitable on X (formerly Twitter) saying that the company is proud to have achieved the milestone ahead of its expectations. 

  • To be sure, Zomato's Rs 2 crore net profits come a quarter ahead of its expectations. 

The impact

  • The news helped Zomato's shares jump over 14% in value in the morning trade on August 4. 
We expect our business to remain profitable going forward.
- Akshant Goyal, Zomato CFO to shareholders
  • Zomato attributed its small success in part to the loyalty programme offered to its customers, Zomato Gold. Zomato Gold contributes to about 30% of the company's main food delivery business. 
  • On the other hand, Zomato's other two units, B2B Hyperpure supplies and quick-commerce Blinkit are still bleeding money. 


  • Several people congratulated Zomato on achieving the milestone. MoS Rajeev Chandrasekhar called the company a beacon for all investors and startups.

  • Paytm CEO Vijay Shekhar Sharma also congratulated Zomato and Blinkit team for their achievement. 

  • There were also some who indulged in some harmless roasting of Zomato. In one case, an X platform user said he would have given the company Rs 2 crore and they didn't have to go door-to-door delivering food. 

  • Goyal took it in graciously with a reply.
