TORONTO — To celebrate Earth Day on April 22, Foodora will be rolling out a national sustainability program that will complement the company’s commitment to zero-emission delivery via bicycle, according to Markets Insider.
The sustainability program will have three components: food transparency, recyclable packaging and a dedication to reducing waste. Foodora is looking to empower consumers to practice sustainability through its food delivery.
The company is also rolling out a new menu feature that will specify the ingredients in each dish on a restaurant partner’s menu and highlight menu items that contain local or ethically sourced ingredients to help educate customers on sustainable options available through the Foodora platform.
Foodora will also allow customers to ‘Opt-In’ or ‘Opt-Out’ of cutlery from 20 participating restaurant partners across Canada, including Lola Rosa, Enoteca Monza Pizzeria Moderna, Fresh on Crawford, FARM’R, Swiss Chalet Rotisserie & Grill, Fable Diner and Tractor Foods. The goal is to reduce plastic usage by 30 per cent across the entire platform in 2018. Foodora is aiming to rollout this initiative across all restaurant partners by the end of the year.
