Temu promotes core values of diversity and empowerment

“Temu is built upon our four core values of diversity and inclusion, social responsibility, integrity, and empowerment,” said a Temu spokesman. “It takes a diverse ecosystem to cater to the diverse needs of our customers.”

Temu is owned by PDD Holdings, a publicly listed multinational commerce group that has a decade’s worth of experience in e-commerce and logistics.

The company is known for its emphasis on inclusion and for providing customers with a wide range of authentic goods from diverse merchants.Last year, Temu held a successful Christmas sale, offering shoppers the opportunity to purchase thoughtfully curated gifts for themselves or their loved ones. And in 2023, the company has special promotions for Valentine’s Day as well as the Lunar New Year, with themed items and products from merchants prominently displayed.

Temu has become one of the go-to destinations for those looking for the perfect gift or products to fuel their passions and dreams.

“Art supplies are expensive and Temu has allowed me to afford my new hobby,” Samantha said. “Without Temu, I might not be able to afford my new passion.”

Temu customers can shop with peace of mind in a safe and secure marketplace
