Singapore: Regulator probing online food delivery sector

 |  October 14, 2019

The Competition and Consumer Commission of Singapore (CCCS) has launched an investigation into the virtual kitchens and online food delivery sectors.

The investigation will also look into the use of exclusive agreements and refusal of service by players to block competition.

The regulator has stated that the investigation will focus on two types of conduct.

The second looks into the refusal to supply online food delivery service to F&B tenants of virtual kitchens either run or owned by competitors.
