Zomato said it will soon introduce ‘tamper-proof tapes’ to avoid such situations in the future. If you stay alone or even if together and you can’t cook edible food, then to your resort comes the option of ordering food online. We all order food from the online food ordering apps and they have kind of become a part of our lives. And in most of the Indian cities, Zomato is among the biggest online food ordering market.
However, fate had other plans and it was only yesterday that we all will now have trust issues in ordering food from such apps. It so happened that a food delivery guy started to eat food that was sent for delivery. The video went viral, and we again desired to eat home-cooked wholesome food.
The video was shared on the Twitter handle of @Madan-Chikna with the sarcastic caption,” This is what happens when you use coupon codes all the time. Watch till the end.”

The viral video shows a deliveryman sitting on a bike wearing a Zomato T-shirt with Zomato delivery bag. He starts to eat the food from the food parcel that was designated for delivery. The video does not end here rather he keeps this parcel and starts to eat food from the other parcel.
After having food from the other parcel he seals it and places it back in the bag. He is also seen in the video adjusting the smaller pack of food, and after this, he prepares to leave.
The video quickly goes viral and was liked and retweeted on social media. Some were concerned with the service provider, while others severely trolled Zomato.
Zomato also shared an official statement and blog post after the incident.
“if true, this unfortunate and not in line with our beliefs. We take this very seriously and will soon introduce tamper-proof tapes, and another precautionary measure to ensure we safeguard against this,” wrote the company.
The blog post shared, “the person in the video happened to be a delivery partner in our fleet. We have spoken to him at length and while we understand that this was a human error in judgment, we have taken him off our platform.”
They were humble and also thanked and welcomed the users for highlighting the incident and grievances actively.

Delivery Boys earn upwards of 25k/month which is equal to the entry level salary of an Infosys techie.
This perfumed elite is recommending giving them handouts. “Bechare bhookhe nange”. Absolutely demeaning to any self respecting zomato employee. pic.twitter.com/6iRy8W8tg3
