Is Wolt Azerbaijan suspending deliveries? No, the company continues operations!

Wolt Azerbaijan LLC has temporarily halted its operations

There were news in the media recently that Wolt Azerbaijan LLC has temporarily halted its operations in the country following a planned inspection by the Azerbaijan Food Safety Agency. The inspection revealed several violations of technical regulations related to food safety standards at the company’s food products delivery enterprise Azerbaijan Food Safety Agency told Trend News Agency.

Right a way, Wolt shared a press release stating: “We inform you that Wolt is still operational. Our app is up and running and users can continue to place their orders as normal. As for the allegations raised by AQTA, Wolt is operating in full compliance with the law, a fact that has been verified through a court ruling.”

Apparently, Wolt got under pressure from the governmental institutions and specifically Food Safety Agency of The Republic of Azerbaijan. Under the reasons of “its commitment to ensuring food safety and safeguarding consumer rights” AQTA started a wave of media pressure on the food delivery company.

The agency’s spokesperson stated, “The company violates the Law of the Republic of Azerbaijan ‘On Food Safety.’ In addition, the company operates without food safety registration, and products are transported without proper temperature conditions. Disinfection protocols are not being adhered to, and individuals involved in food product delivery have not undergone required medical examinations.”

Wolt’s response to this was: “The information disseminated by AQTA about the detection of violations in the activities of “VOLT AZƏRBAYCAN” is entirely unfounded. Unfortunately, AQTA has chosen to spread incomplete and inaccurate information on social media that damages our reputation in order to put pressure on our company.”
