The Restaurant & Catering Association of Australia and Unilever Food Solutions have joined forces to support #TakeawayTuesday, to encourage Aussies all over the country to help local businesses by ordering takeaway or delivery from their favourite restaurants and sharing their experiences using the #TakeawayTuesday hashtag.
“#TakeawayTuesday is about helping your favourite local restaurant, café or venue, survive post COVID-19. It is more important now than ever before to get out and patronise your favourite local restaurant to ensure they can be here, continuing to serve, post COVID-19.”
“Our restaurant industry is essential to the economic and social prosperity of millions of Australians. Eating out is an integral part of the Australian culture and the restaurant industry provides employment for people across the nation. If we want to continue enjoying our local neighbourhood cafes and restaurants, we need to support them now so that their doors can remain open when we come out on the other side of this pandemic.”
To help hospitality industry grow demand for takeaway and delivery, and to supplement their reduced dine-in businesses, we have evolved #EatAloneTogether into #TakeawayTuesday – encouraging all Australians to place an order every Tuesday in support of local restaurants.
