At present, users of Wolt platform can order food products from Orkla Latvija, organic products from, meat and culinary products from Lauku Baudas, gastronomy products from Lage, caviar from Caviar d'Eden, ice cream from Home of Ice Cream, ice cream, bread and bakery products from Salas Maizes, as well as groceries from LaTS retail chain.
