Newsletter July 2020 | Are you ordering your food online?

Dear readers,

Do you usually need a snack in the afternoon? I don’t, but the whole office likes a light bite of the season. Eky, who leads our digital team, sure knows which app gets us the best food.

When we feel peckish, we send ‘boba milk tea’ or ‘honey-glazed fried bananas’ into her online basket. But who knows whether those bites are safe to eat? Standing at a roadside kiosk we know when the vendor melts plastic bags into the frying oil to make the snacks crispy. Ordering online, we cannot see the frying oil used for the bananas. And since the food is delivered by courier, who guarantees it was protected before it arrived in Eky’s hands?
