Building a sustainable global food system is at the heart of Choco’s mission. For this reason, the company has purchased a wide range of climate-neutral food packaging and negotiated with its own supplier network in Germany in order to offer it at an extremely competitive price. DoorDash dealers can now benefit from this exclusive service via the Choco app.
More than 100 packaging products are available, from pizza boxes to chopsticks, to meet all restaurant needs. A special Choco support team is available to DoorDash dealers around the clock to answer their questions.
“Together with DoorDash, we can deliver real added value to restaurants on both sides. While DoorDash enables restaurants to sell more meals and increase their income, we help them source sustainable ingredients to prepare those meals,” said Daniel Khachab, CEO and Co-Founder of Choco. “With this partnership we are supporting the start of DoorDash in Germany by giving all DoorDash dealers in Stuttgart easy access to packaging solutions with minimal environmental impact and a minimal footprint. This is not only a win for the restaurant industry, but also for the planet, because we’re removing harmful aluminum and styrofoam from food delivery. We’re very excited to be working with a partner like DoorDash. ”
