Why Zomato Created a Pure Veg Mode?

According to the food delivery platform, the feedback from vegetarian customers prompted Zomato to create a pure veg option so that people who are highly strict about their veg diet can relax and not worry about anything at all. A lot of individuals in India have also criticised the move by terming it propagative.

Update about the Pure Veg Fleet of Zomato

Deepinder Goyal posted on Twitter today that there won’t be any different colour segregation for the veg fleet for the Zomato delivery boys. All Zomato delivery partners will wear the red dress and carry the red Zomato box for delivery. Yesterday, Zomato said that there will be a completely different fleet for the pure veg orders, with the Zomato delivery partners wearing green dresses and carrying green order bags. However, after the public backlash, Zomato decided to take the move back. But Deepinder has confirmed that the feature of selecting Pure Veg restaurants is going to be available in the Zomato app. Also, Zomato will ensure that the delivery partners who do not handle non-veg items will deliver the pure veg food to the customers.
