COVID-19 has brought disruption to many people, and in the case of the Singapore food & groceries industry, many have lost their livelihoods.
From empty hawker centres to restaurants with no table or chairs, the current food model has become unviable.
We hear stories also of old elderly hawkers who have no access to the online network who have lost their only source of income. The situation is dire and something must be done or we risk losing an entire generation of our local food heritage.
In order to create a long-term sustainable ecosystem within the industry, market balance has to be achieved.
This, however, is not the case at present, with much vital income being taken away from food and grocery establishments due to high payable commission fees to delivery platforms.
An oversupply of delivery drivers has also resulted in a drop of income for their families.
DaBaoNow Singapore was created to change the status quo and reinvent the way food is sold in the digital space.
Our vision is to build an environment where food and grocery establishments are maximising their profits, delivery crew personnel are paid their dues, and consumers have quick and easy access to a large variety of food and products online.
We stand united with our food & grocery partners in this very challenging time.
We are all a part of this interconnected web of relationships and food is what keeps us together.
Collectively, we can all make a difference. So let’s all come together to support one another in our community by caring for those who are especially vulnerable and supporting them by contributing to their wellbeing.
