After almost two years running, food delivery service Lalafood will cease operations starting on February 15, 2021. The business unit is under Lalamove.
According to Lalamove, the company will redirect its focus entirely on their core Lalamove delivery business.
Last year’s pandemic has most staying indoors with many relying on food delivery services such as Lalafood, Grab and Food Panda for restaurant and fast food meals.
Lalafood’s statement was posted on Facebook. It reads:
In 2018, the Lalafood incubation project was started by Lalamove as a means to explore the food delivery sector. While as a company we have learnt a great deal from Lalfood, a decision has been made to redirect our focus entirely on our core Lalamove delivery business. February 15, 2021, will be the last day of Lalafood platform operations.
We express our deepest gratitude to all of Lalafood’s customers for your continued support, and to our partner riders and merchants who were with us throughout this journey.
2021 will continue to be another year of strong growth for Lalamove in the Philippines. We are committed to strengthening our investment in the Philippines to better serve our customers and provide more opportunities for our driver-partners and employees. With expansion plans already underway in Manila and to the Pampanga province in February 2021, we place great confidence in the Philippine market and we are excited for what lies ahead in 2021. This year is just unfolding and there’s so much in store for us all.
