The spread of the coronavirus COVID-19, and extensive actions to combat it, has led to a rise in demand for food delivery. Many consumers globally have been ordering food for delivery as a result of being mandated or voluntarily chosen to stay at home. Demand for food delivery has risen in most countries that witnessed the outbreak. Statistics from Asia show that in South Korea, food delivery has seen a weekly increase of 3% to 4% since January 20. Singapore’s aggregator Grab orders rose by 20% in early March.

According to the FDA in the US, there is currently no evidence that COVID-19 can be transmitted through food or food packaging. WHO confirms, COVID-19 is transmitted from person to person, through coughing or vaporized air particles or other close direct contacts.
What about the virus getting to the food itself?
Restaurants and other food services are highly regulated by health officials and have had protocols in place for years to avoid spreading influenza, norovirus, hepatitis A and other viruses. The same safety protocols apply to anyone handling, preparing and serving food. Make sure your consumers are aware of it!
