A Painful Petition To Save Indian F&B Industry from Zomato Swiggy Uber Eats
We, the group of Restaurant and Takeaway Owners are hereby lodging our protest and are boycotting Zomato, Swiggy and Uber Eats for selling of our food items on these platforms.
The reason for initiating this action is the extreme level of losses that we are facing everyday and with every order that is received through these online food apps.
To elaborate on this, we all are paying upto 28% commissions + 40% to 50% discounts on food. Though the 10% of these discounts are shared by these food apps but even then we are collectively been deducted with 53% on most of the orders. This much deduction makes it totally unviable and loss making proposition for a food outlet.
This is also been observed that because of the monopolistic positioning of these online food apps in market, if any food outlet does not opt for these discounts then that food outlet stops to get orders. Also the footfall and on the counter sales are now negligible because customers are offered up to 40% to 50% off on food through these online apps .
We would like to request to these online food companies to withdraw their heavy discounting so that there should be the fair and level playing field for everyone and the small businesses does not fall prey to these monopolistic positioning of these online food apps.
We would also like to request Competition Commission of India to look into this matter very seriously and urgently to save the lakhs of families and employees which are at the stake of losing their daily livelihood and employment.
If our humble demands are not addressed and a mutual agreed solution is not found then all the Restaurants and Takeaway Owners across India will be keeping their businesses Off from these online platforms".
