As part of their mission to highlight developments in the food industry and support local restaurants, Deliveroo and Deliverect hosted a panel discussion featuring Seham AlHusaini, General Manager of Deliveroo, Naji Haddad, MENA General Manager at Deliverect, and Abdulrahman Al Omar, Managing Partner at Thinnies.
During the course of the event, the speakers discussed the important role that technology plays in helping local restaurants optimise their delivery operations, maximise profitability in the delivery-only model, keep customers loyal in the digital food space and the food trends in 2023.
Naji Haddad, MENA General Manager at Deliverect, said "Now more than ever, restaurants are realising the integral role technology is having on the food industry. We saw it before the pandemic when online delivery started increasing, and then the pandemic accelerated it tenfold. The majority of restaurants started adopting delivery, online ordering, and digital menus. While technology has already improved several aspects of the restaurant industry, there is still much more to be done. The future of food is digital, and technology will continue to be a key driver in achieving growth, profitability, and improving customer experience.”
