Uber Eats says Hongkongers are eating healthier amid pandemic
Uber Eats says they have observed a shift in Hong Kongers’ eating habits after a full year of adjusting to new ways to work and dine, as the food delivery platform announced today it is bringing its delivery service to Tsing Yi.
This year marks a new way of life where food delivery has become an integral part of Hongkongers, with the pandemic causing people to rethink and readjust their lifestyles, having health becoming one of their top priorities.
Uber Eats said they have seen an 800 percent increase in healthy food orders during the dine-in restriction periods, where people are ordering more from vegan, vegetarian-friendly, and healthy restaurants.
The platform also saw Hongkongers start eating dinner earlier at 6pm and order more food items per order to enjoy with their family in the comfort of their own home - a silver lining for employees embracing a new work-from-home model.
With Uber Eats’ latest move to expand its food delivery service to Tsing Yi, a line-up of cuisines ranging from local cha chaan tengs, Chiu Chow deli, chicken pot and western food will be available for Tsing Yiers, along with those all-time favorite chained restaurants.
