Deliveroo Reveals Workers' Food Preferences As Deliveroo For Business Is Relaunched For Returning Office Workers

Deliveroo for Work, previously known as Deliveroo for Business, now has 20,000 clients globally, which amounts to four million employees.

The B2B solution for companies provides a hybrid canteen for the new model of working that will see people blending their working week from at home and at the office.

Helping businesses to provide subsidised or free meals to employees, Deliveroo for Work enables companies to only pay for what they need based on office capacity that day, thus cutting down on food waste and contributing to decreasing carbon emissions.

This service is being relaunched to coincide with workers beginning to return to their offices.

Unique Catering Option

Paddy Quinlan, senior regional manager, Deliveroo Ireland, said, "One client revealed to us that the previous canteen model they were using lost over €12k in food waste per year, something that can be instantly improved by moving to a more sustainable, pay for what you need, hybrid canteen model. Deliveroo for Work has become so popular with lots of employers and employees, and we’re proud to be able to help people with a sustainable and flexible way of eating."

The new catering option for businesses gives access to professional catering partners such as Bujo Burger  and With Taste in Dublin and Hapi Food Co in Meath.

Delivery is available to any postcode, including those outside the coverage area denoted on the app, and depending on the size of the catered event.

A spokesperson for business messaging app Slack, a regular client of Deliveroo for Work, said, "At Slack we have used Deliveroo for Work during virtual events and as a way to connect with our customers. While we were not able to be with them in person, we wanted to continue to surprise and delight them, and this approach allowed us to do that. I would highly recommend any business consider how they can use Deliveroo for Work in their client and employee benefits strategy.”

Deliveroo for Work also announces the launch of Plus for Work - a new perk businesses can give to their employees allowing them to enjoy free delivery on all orders from Deliveroo.
