More Than Just A 'Delivery Man Caught Eating Zomato Orders' Incident

The reality

This has been the talk of the country since the video, of the Zomato delivery boy eating from every box, went viral on 11th December. And it was shocking indeed. As a consumer, you start questioning every meal you’ve had, every loose tape, you didn’t pay heed to or every box where you found less pieces than you expected. It’s a downward spiral of overthinking and disgust. Maybe it’s just one person who was caught, maybe there’s more! Maybe there’s not enough people filming delivery boys en route with the food.

Sorry to cause unnecessary panic, but that was an example of how easy it is to spread dread and draw attention away from the real point of concern.



Zomato recently put out a statement which claimed that they were receiving around 21 million food orders every month.
Why, then do their delivery boys feel the need to eat from the food they’re delivering?
I’ll tell you. The money from the 21 million food orders goes to Zomato without giving out any benefits to the people who make it possible for food to reach the buyers!
Giants like Zomato give out discounts and offers and cut back on payment per delivery for these people who need the money for their livelihood. The least Zomato can do is provide its riders with two square meals a day.

"Earlier we used to get 60 rupees [85 cents] per delivery. Then from 60, it became 40. Still, I continued because I had to educate my children. Now the company is planning to make it 30 rupees per delivery. But I have expenses - petrol is expensive, I have children as well. Tell me what should I do?" one delivery person, who did not want to be identified, told the BBC.

The person in the video was sacked by Zomato because they take "food tampering very seriously”.
I say Zomato is tampering with peoples lives by promising Gold and handing out a potato.
