The kink in the food delivery business

We look at the astonishing growth of food delivery companies - and their weaknesses

Food delivery services are growing, as appetites for home-delivered food makes way for a burgeoning side-hustle that benefits young people especially – but competition to make the most money sees some delivery giants pulling out of key markets; we check in with the big movers and losers of the delivery revolution. Germany’s economy has contracted – we look at why its woes may only get bigger, as talks of recession are on peoples’ lips, and what a decline in German business activity might mean for the rest of us. And should hamburgers be banned to fight climate change? Minnette Batters of Britain's National Farmers Union discusses the issues with environmentalist George Monbiot.
