Over a quarter of food delivery drivers have confessed to snacking on a customer’s order.
A new survey carried out in the US found 28 per cent of workers tasted the food before they delivered it.
U.S. Foods, a food service distributor, surveyed more than 1,518 adults who use food delivery apps, as well as 497 food deliverers.
Customers appeared to be wise to drivers’ thieving ways – 20 per cent of those questioned said they’d suspected their food has been tucked into.
And 85 per cent of takeaway fans said they wanted restaurants to use tamper-evident labels to ensure their food arrives untouched.
