Talabat goes green for groceries

Talabat, the region’s leading food and grocery delivery app, stays true to its promise for a greener environment by using recycled materials as delivery boxes.

This green packaging initiative will be available for all grocery orders made through the app from stores such as Carrefour, Spar, and Monoprix.

Talabat sets another first in the delivery industry in Qatar by using recycled boxes made by Elite Paper Recycling (EPR), the only Qatar-based manufacturer of recycled products.

After working together for the Eco-Dome Project, Talabat responds to EPR’s call for a more sustainable environment through the green box implementation.

Talabat is following the necessary safety measures, including the use of cardboard boxes as recommended by WHO. Based on research, it was shown that the COVID-19 virus can survive for up to 72 hours on plastic and less than 24 hrs on cardboard.

Francisco Miguel de Sousa, Talabat Qatar’s Managing Director, said, "Talabat is proud to be using Qatari products by Elite Paper Recycling. This recycled box initiative is just the beginning of Talabat's green building transformation. We all have a role to play in shaping a sustainable future, and this is just one of our many initiatives to come and be in line with the Qatar Sustainability and the Qatar National Vision 2030."

Chairman of Elite Paper Recycling, Mr. Abdullah Ibrahim Al-Suwaidi said, "We are very pleased with our cooperation with Talabat, the leading online platform industry. Talabat will be the first company to deliver customers’ orders using recycled cardboard as this cooperation will move to other stages in the future."

“This campaign was launched amidst the COVID 19 crisis outbreak and is the first of its kind in Qatar and we are very proud to say that it’s 100 % Made in Qatar & 100 % Recyclable and Eco Friendly," said Catina Aghayan EPR Communications Strategy Advisor.

Talabat is participating in many ways to save the environment. A ‘No Cutlery’ option is also available in the app to opt from using plastic utensils.

Order your groceries via the Talabat app available for download on the AppStore or Google Play.
