Uber Eats and Deliveroo are disrupting the competition – Denis Ducarme

The Belgian authorities suspect the food delivery services Uber Eats and Deliveroo of unlawful market practices. Minister Denis Ducarme sends the inspection to the American and British delivery companies.

“I do not want them to weaken the hospitality sector, which is severely affected by the Covid-19 crisis,” said the minister.

He does not rule out legal action. The Belgian Competition Authority may also be called in.

Ducarme met with representatives of the “Savemyresto” campaign on Friday, complaining about “aggressive” practices by Uber Eats and Deliveroo, including overcommissions and promotional campaigns without consulting restaurants.

“Anyone who abuses his dominant position will encounter the government on his way,” warns Ducarme.

If it turns out that they are guilty of unfair practices, the minister holds out the prospect of sanctions against the companies.
