New Delhi ; Zomato, an online food delivery platform, will increase the number of women in its delivery service to 10% by the end of the year, as part of its workplace fullness initiatives.

Zomato has always aimed at being an “inclusive workplace”,Goyal said, “So far, our inclusive workplace initiatives haven’t taken into consideration the fact that only about 0.5 per cent of our delivery partners are women.”
