Yandex – the tech company which has a tie-up in Russia with Uber – has reportedly bought the food delivery firm Foodfox to expand the activities of UberEats in Russia.
According to a report published yesterday (25 December) by Bloomberg, the food-delivery division will be headed by Foodfox founders Maxim Firsov and Sergey Polissar.
While UberEats currently works with several hundred restaurants in Moscow, Foodfox reportedly works with more than 2,000 restaurants in Russia’s capital city.
