Almost a week after Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal grilled foreign e-commerce companies in a meeting, the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) has summoned online food delivery firms such as Zomato and Swiggy to discuss the issues in the food services ecosystem, according to sources privy to the development.

The meeting will happen in the evening on July 4 and will also see in attendance folks from the offline industry, including National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI), South India Hotels and Restaurant Association and Hotels and Restaurants Association Western India, besides Uber Eats and Foodpanda.

The meeting will be chaired by Ramesh Abhishek, secretary, DPIIT, Ministry of Commerce and Industry.

"The forum will provide a platform for food services aggregators and restaurant industry associations to discuss mutual areas of interest, identify challenges and develop viable solutions that shall pave the way to boost equitable growth in the industry," said the department in the invite sent to the stakeholders.
