With the increasing number of dual-employee and single-parent families, the demand for food and beverage delivery services in Japan is growing. The entry of another overseas company into the Japanese market, following Uber in the US, is expected to intensify competition in the Japanese takeaway market.

The business name is “Didi Food” (temporary name).

To ensure the distribution staff, Didi plan to develop a variety of compensation measures. Medical and hospital expenses will also be paid for the injury or damage to the item struck during the delivery process, as well as in the event of an injury to the delivery officer.
