partnership of delivery platforms with restaurants

NEW YORK: Food conveyances keep on being one and only choices left for restaurants to serve their clients in California in the midst of COVID-19 related limitations. Another law will currently guarantee that outsider stages have direct associations with those restaurants prior to including menus in their applications.

On Jan.1, third-party apps as Uber Eats, Door Dash, Caviar, and PostMates have removed tens of thousands of restaurant options due to the Fair Food Delivery Act that went into action in California

Last September, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed Bill 2149 into law, which requires food delivery platforms to get unequivocal approval from restaurants to show them on their applications for requests and delivery.

The legislation states “A food delivery platform shall not arrange for the delivery of an order from a food facility without first obtaining an agreement with the food facility expressly authorizing the food delivery platform to take orders and deliver meals prepared by the food facility,”.

The bill was first presented by California State Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez a year ago after café proprietors across the state stood in opposition to the act of delivery services that were adding them to their platforms without informing them.
