In a release, the company stated that it “has been unable to reach a level of profitability in Canada that’s sustainable enough to continue operations.”

“I’m very proud of what foodora has accomplished over the last few years. I’ve been able to witness food delivery grow from its infancy into what it is today, and helping to build a brand I’m proud of. However, there’s been some challenges along the way. We’re faced with strong competition in the Canadian market, and operate a business that requires a high volume of transactions to turn a profit. We’ve been unable to get to a position which would allow us to continue to operate without having to continually absorb losses,” said David Albert, Managing Director of foodora Canada.

Foodora currently has a roster of 3,000 restaurants in 10 cities across Canada.
