Equipment Safety Standards

Food safety is incredibly important and using the correct kit is key to ensuring that orders arrive at the customer in the best condition possible.

Failing to use all required safety equipment when you work with Deliveroo is a breach of your supplier agreement with us. Due to the serious impact that this has on food service and safety, if you are found to be online working with us without kit that meets these standards, we would be unable to continue working with you as a rider with Deliveroo.
