    display hygiene rating of all food business
    operators registered or affiliated with them.

    including Zomato, Swiggy, Uber Eats and Food
    Panda on the issue and also directed them to get
    the hygiene rating done of all the food business
    operators (FBOs) registered with them.
  • Condition The terms put forward includes that
    only those FBO s who are at higher level of
    hygiene rating (bearing 3 or more smilies),
    should be allowed to supply food under the online
    food orders-delivery mechanism.
