Deliveroo withdraws from Germany to concentrate on other markets

Online food delivery service Deliveroo has said it is pulling out of Germany to concentrate on other markets, but is holding out the possibility of returning at a later date.

London-based Deliveroo said will shut down its service in Europe’s biggest economy on August 16.

In an email sent to customers, the company said its goal is “to create the world’s best food delivery service” and “offering customers, drivers and restaurants an outstanding service”.

It added that “where we cannot provide this on the level that we expect and that you deserve, we do not operate”.

Like other food delivery services, the company has been criticised in Germany and elsewhere for its treatment of its drivers and cyclists.
