Deliveroo to end operations in Germany this week
Food delivery company Deliveroo said on Monday that it will stop operating in Germany on 16 August.
Deliveroo said that it would be focusing on other markets in European countries and in the Asia-Pacific region.
The company said that its drivers as well as restaurants and employees would receive “appropriate” severance and compensation packages.
They added that customers will be paid back for outstanding credit on their accounts.
Deliveroo was founded in London in 2013 and continues to operate in 13 countries worldwide. The service faced calls for a boycott in France last week after delivery riders there criticized the company’s new payment system that would lower their wages.
The company amassed 1,100 freelance delivery riders as well as around 100 employees since it launched operations in Germany in 2015.
