talabat, one of the region’s leading food delivery and quick commerce (“q-commerce”) platforms, has been announced as the official food delivery provider for Expo 2020 Dubai, showcasing more than 30 brands and 15 different cuisines from around the globe to the world’s biggest cultural gathering.
Under the agreement, talabat will cater to both dine-in and delivery customers, with talabat riders delivering to fixed locations throughout Expo’s site using safe, sustainably responsible e-scooters. Visitors to Expo 2020 can order through the talabat app, which is available on Google Play, Huawei AppGallery or IOS App Store.
talabat Kitchen, an innovative, sustainable two-floor cloud kitchen, will showcase the future of food delivery experiences, including 10 autonomous delivery vehicles, plus a robotic ice-cream confectioner and barista that will wow visitors to Expo 2020. The talabat Kitchen differs from a traditional cloud kitchen, with its combined dine-in experience to cater to Expo’s millions of visitors.
Galal Abdellatif, director of food & beverage, Expo 2020 Dubai, said: “Expo 2020 will have something for everyone, with food that is central to its multicultural experience – visitors will be able to explore exciting global cuisines, without leaving the UAE. We are thrilled to reveal innovative F&B practices, such as talabat’s cloud kitchen, which is a key changing trend in the food and beverage industry, and adds diversity and value to the visitor experience.”
Tomaso Rodriguez, CEO of talabat, said: “With less than 50 days to go until Expo 2020, we cannot wait to showcase the future of food delivery experiences, and support the UAE in welcoming the world to a celebration like no other.
