This 2-part project focuses on food delivery cooperatives as alternatives to the existent food delivery platform model.
- The report notes the various problems with the current platform system, including tendency to monopoly, poor working conditions and exacerbated inequality.
- An alternative path is tracked, via a proposal for a food delivery cooperative, that retains the various benefits of the platform model but integrates more equal outcomes.
- New urban infrastructure is proposed, from rider service stations, rest and meeting zones, and dedicated dispatch zones.
- We’ve also produced a ‘How to’ guide for setting up a food delivery cooperative, in collaboration with CoopCycle and Cooperatives UK.
