If you frequently use food delivery services, you’d realise that the same bags are used for all orders, regardless of restaurants, Halal certification, or Vegetarian orders.
Also, what if the food spills out?
So in response to this potential concern and at the request of Muslim restaurants and customers, Deliveroo has decided to just straight up separate halal from non-halal food – by introducing Halal-only delivery bags!
Halal Food Meets Halal Bags
Singapore will be one of the first of the 12 countries that Deliveroo operates in, to receive halal-only delivery bags.
The halal bags are set to be distributed to 3,000 riders in various phases in the month of July.
If the public’s response is favourable, Deliveroo will increase the number of riders carrying halal bags to its remaining 6,000-strong fleet.
In conjunction with this launch, the Deliveroo app will be updated to indicate the Halal certification of a particular restaurant, and riders will be expected to use the Halal-only bags for those orders.
By the end of July, your food order might be delivered in Halal-only bags if you’re ordering from a Halal certified restaurant.
At least now, whenever I order for a party, my Muslim friends can eat in peace.
