Deliveroo furthers commitment to plastic waste reduction

The delivery platform has also introduced the plant-based Impossible Burger, now available from over 100 outlets in the country.

Deliveroo in Singapore has announced that it has signed up to the World Wide Fund for Nature’s (WWF) Plastic Action (PACT) pledge, further committing to plastic waste reduction.

The delivery platform had introduced in May 2018 its opt-in cutlery function which saved 90 tonnes of single-use cutlery sets.

“Great food shouldn’t cost the earth, and we look forward to continuing our collaboration with the WWF to reduce plastics in the industry. Deliveroo is committed to being the definitive food company, but that should go hand in hand with protecting our natural environment,” Deliveroo Singapore general manager Siddharth Shanker said in a statement.

“Packaging cannot be completely eliminated in an industry that relies on it for health and safety reasons, but it can be better managed,” WWF communications chief Kim Stengert added.

Deliveroo has also announced its partnership with BioPak in offering more than 80 compostable packaging options at a discounted rate to partner restaurants, urging them to remove all unsustainable packaging by 2024.

Moreover, it teamed up with US-based Impossible Foods in introducing the food tech brand’s plant-based Impossible Burger, which is now available from over 100 outlets across the country.
