In many countries, COVID-19 has forced all restaurants to close down the dine-in part of their business, as they are considered non-essential and are a potential health risk for the spread of the virus.

Possible COVOTS

  • Package up your menu for "cook at home" and deliver a daily fresh package of the recipes and ingredients
