Vietnamese maternity and baby product retailer Con Cung has secured a $90m investment from healthcare-focused private equity firm Quadria Capital.

The company plans to use the proceeds to support its expansion, with the aim of opening 2,000 local stores by 2025.

Con Cung will also use the fund to add to its product portfolio and develop an all-in-one ‘super app’ to offer personalised maternity products and services.

Con Cung co-founder and chairman Minh Nguyen said: “While traditional offline trade still occupies an important part of commerce in Vietnam, digitalisation is fast-changing consumer preferences and many Vietnamese mothers are shifting part of their spending towards e-commerce.

“We aim to be the one-stop destination for mothers to fulfil their maternity and baby-care needs in a convenient and safe environment.

“To do so, we recognise the need to expand our retail channels, both online and offline, and create a holistic ecosystem to support mothers and families.
