Zomato has now come out with a “food for thought” post on Twitter types of food tags imposed on the food and these tags, according to the online food ordering/delivery application (app) are Jain Food, Vegan Food, Navrathra Thalis, and others as well. This insight from the app has no gone viral on social media. Zomato states that it does not yet display the Jhatka meat tag due to the absence of organized units for jhatka meat, and an apparent arising authentication gap, and that the halal tag is a result of restaurants’ initiatives for their food to be identified that way. It also stated that it was open to putting jhatka meat tags in the future.
