First lady Emine Erdoğan’s food bank initiative to cut food waste is expanding its network, as the number of food banks delivering food to needy households increased to 69. By spreading food banks across the country, the initiative aims to save TL 30 billion yearly. Currently, 32 provinces host food banks. Apart from depositing food, people can leave clothes and cleaning materials for delivery to families in need. The initiative, with the motto “sharing is gaining,” sets up food banks in cooperation with municipalities and nongovernmental organizations (NGO) that host the banks.

It brings together food producers or donors with people in need. Farmers, food producers, suppliers, retailers, restaurants and wholesalers joined the initiative for discarded but edible food to be delivered to the banks. Food banks aim to “recycle” 60% of the discarded food. The number of banks will increase to 81 by the end of 2019. Already, 32 municipalities host food banks, saving 30% in recycling food in six months.

The banks are supplied with items nearing expiration dates, items with packaging errors and import and export surplus.

They work on a supply and demand basis. Donors first declare the amount of the donation to the banks, and food bank workers visit families in need to determine their primary needs. They later hand out “debit cards” to families with a pre-installed virtual currency for food they need. Cardholders then visit the banks, which are in the form of supermarkets, and can obtain 30-40 different items, from food to cleaning materials.

Food banks currently exist in many cities, from İzmir and Istanbul to Çorum and Hatay. The western city of Manisa has the highest number with 19 food banks.

Food waste costs Turkey TL 214 billion every year. According to official figures, six million loaves of bread go to waste every day, which is equivalent to the cost of construction for at least 80 hospitals and 500 schools, officials say.

Several NGOs already run similar food banks, and they delivered food worth TL 24 million in the past year, as well as clothing donations worth TL 14.3 million.

Korea’s Top Regulator Chair Nominee Will Maintain Slow Approach To Crypto Assets

He was one of the main figures behind the Initial Coin Offering (ICO) ban and also in favor of imposing certain restrictions on crypto exchanges having …

Eun Sung-soo, the nominee to be the next chairman of the top financial regulator of South Korea, has recently talked about his future policies for crypto if he indeed gets to be in the position.

According to him, if he does get his position at the top of the Financial Services Commission (FSC), he is set to evaluate the crypto world with a slow approach.

He believes that these new assets really need more regulation in order to avoid money laundering and to be more transparent. However, he is also very cautious. He notices some degree of risk involving cryptos and has pointed at the Kimchi Premium to show how speculative cryptos can be.

The nominee also affirmed that this is not the time to fully integrate cryptos with the rest of the economy. According to him, a strong legal foundation needs to be properly established before this can happen. Doing it hastily could have side effects and he does not seem to be eager to try.

This, the local experts affirmed, can point out to a continuation of the policies that were started by Choi Jong-Ku, the current chairman who is leaving his position this week.

Choi is seen as one of the forces that stopped cryptos to be more prominent in South Korea. He was one of the main figures behind the Initial Coin Offering (ICO) ban and also in favor of imposing certain restrictions on crypto exchanges having bank accounts.

Crypto groups believe that this slow approach puts the industry in a bad position because only a few exchanges can work properly. The next chairman, however, doesn’t seem to agree with them.

Food delivery giant DoorDash launching in Australia to take on Uber Eats and Deliveroo

Food delivery giant DoorDash is set to launch in Australia next week creating competition for incumbents Uber Eats and Deliveroo. Founded in 2013 …

Online food delivery in Australia is a lucrative market, valued at $1.3 billion for 2019 according to Deloitte’s ‘Future of Food’ report. However it is also highly competitive, with food delivery company Foodora collapsing last year.

DoorDash’s entry into Australia is likely to attract scrutiny from labour advocates after a New York Times report into DoorDash in the United States revealed the start-up took tips intended for delivery drivers or ‘dashers’ and used it for their base pay.

I think it will be difficult for DoorDash to get traction and recognition.

Ken Burgin

Chief executive and co-founder, Tony Xu, confirmed last month DoorDash would change its payment model.

“We thought we were doing the right thing by making dashers whole when a customer left no tip,” he wrote on Twitter. “What we missed was that some customers who *did* tip would feel like their tip did not matter.”

Postmates joins DoorDash and Caviar in letting you make a group food order

DoorDash has offered group orders on the web since at least 2015 and on its app since 2017, and Caviar (now owned by DoorDash) offers group …

Let’s be honest, anytime can be lunchtime. But the next time 10:58AM rolls around and you and your friends are too lazy busy to scrounge up some lunch, you’ll be able to use Postmates to make a group food order for delivery or pickup. Postmates says it’s rolling out group ordering over the next few days on its app (after downloading the latest update) or on its website.

Before you rush to impress your friends with your solution for lunch, know that other food ordering services already have the feature. DoorDash has offered group orders on the web since at least 2015 and on its app since 2017, and Caviar (now owned by DoorDash) offers group orders on a desktop web browser. And for companies that need convenient ways to feed lots of employees, Grubhub and Seamless (which merged in 2013) as well as Caviar offer programs designed just for that.

Postmates’ group orders should work just like they do with DoorDash or Caviar. One person sends an invite link to order participants and can set a spending limit so that someone can’t put too many appetizers on your tab. Once everyone has picked their food, the person who started the order can make any final edits before placing it.

It’s somewhat surprising to see that more food delivery services don’t already have this feature. Postmates does have another group-ish option, Postmates Party, which lets you order food as part of a large, anonymous group to avoid delivery fees, but Parties are short-term deals at select restaurants, not a meal of your choice with your friends.

Grubhub lets you split the bill with friends using Venmo, but you still have to pass your phone around to everyone so they can pick their meals. And Grubhub, Seamless, and Caviar have the aforementioned programs for offices to order meals, but those aren’t something everyone can use. Postmates isn’t the first company to offer group ordering, but it shouldn’t be the last, either.
