Online grocery and delivery company, honestbee announced in a media statement yesterday (15 May) that it will be ceasing its food delivery service in Singapore, as well as temporarily suspending its laundry service effective 20 May 2019.
While the company's headcount remains unaffected, about 400 delivery riders, or delivery bees, will be affected.
The statement said: "Although many delivery bees are part-timers, they have played a key role, and have been a critical part of the honestbee family. During this transition, honestbee remains committed to assist all delivery bees."
Per the statement, this decision was a move to optimise the company's business structure, as well as to "drive better focus and alignment with honestbee’s current strategic priorities."
honestbee will continue to operate it's physical space, habitat by honestbee, as well as its grocery delivery service in the country.
