The food delivery service sector plays a major role in society by providing a platform to order meals with a click of a button and is challenged to meet their customer demand for more sustainable food choices. With consumers becoming more health and environmentally conscious, competition amongst food delivery services is evident by comparing the forward-thinking companies to the ones falling behind, in relation to a sustainable economy.
The Atlas Challenge ranking is based on FOUR PAWS’ assessment. It provides a clear understanding of the food delivery service sector performance, when it comes to progressive food strategies which support a meat reduction approach as well as of meat substitutes and innovative (plant-based) alternatives. The reduction of meat products and the availability of alternatives from plants, is the key to lower greenhouse gas emissions and the impact on our planet and farm animals suffering in factory farms.
