City Government to Provide Food Delivery Service
An online food ordering service was launched this week by the city government to ensure safe delivery of healthy breakfast or lunch to white collar workers in their workplaces. Two companies appointed by the city government will provide the delivery service. The service will help solve the problem of workers that have to leave their workplace just so they can have their meals.
There has been a lack of reliable food providers in the city especially in major business districts and offices. The lack of providers create a huge opportunity for private meal delivery shops, however some of the meal delivery shops use unsafe materials such as recycled cooking oil or unsanitary food containers. A few years back, the city government launched a breakfast and lunch safety campaign and has finally decided to provide the service after studying domestic and international experiences from food delivery providers.
Local food providers, Plus and Minus Catering Chain and Shenzhen Jinguyuan Industrial Development Ltd. have been supplying food for several major sporting events and exhibitions in the city and around the Pearl River Delta. They were the food providers chosen during the Universiade games, Guangzhou Asian games and the Zhuhai air show.
To ensure safety and speed, the companies will be cooking and delivering the meals according to order. Mobile heating equipment and a GPS system will also be used to help track down each meal delivered.
