The Transport Workers Union (TWU) has accused Foodora of ceasing its Australian operations to "avoid responsibility for paying its riders millions of dollars in backpay as a result of wage theft".

Food delivery app, Foodora - the pink one - has confirmed they're wrapping up business in Australia at the end of the month because it wants to explore opportunities in other markets.

"We wish to express our gratitude to all of our customers, contractors and employees for their dedication to Foodora Australia, and for allowing us to be a part of their everyday", Foodora's Australia country managerJeroen Willems said.
But while the company may be ceasing operations on August 20, it's likely they'll need to stick around Australia in some form: they've got two pending lawsuits that they will still have to defend. According to John Chessal, a deliver rider, Foodora's closing was "nice news".
