Gojek Introduces Charge for Disposable Cutlery

Go-Food, the food delivery service of Go-jek, has introduced a charge for disposable cutlery. It could be the first delivery service in Southeast Asia to do so, as the region searches for business solutions to the plastic pollution crisis. The company will also provide drivers with new delivery bags, so that merchant partners can pack food directly into the new bags without using plastic carriers. The opt-in function for cutlery was introduced by Berlin-headquartered Foodpanda and UK-based Deliveroo last year. Gojek’s Malaysia-headquartered rival Grab will be inviting its customers to avoid disposable cutlery from September this year. Go-Food, which processed 529 million food and drink orders last year, is also working with the city government of Denpasar and local green group PlastikDetox to run workshops for hundreds of merchants in Bali on the importance of reducing plastic use in business operations and how they can go about doing so.
