BERLIN (Reuters) – German food delivery group Delivery Hero on Wednesday said it would downsize Foodpanda’s operations in Germany and sell its subsidiary in Japan, citing increased competition and labor shortage.

Delivery Hero said Foodpanda would be leaving Cologne, Duesseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich and Stuttgart, although it had introduced the brand in Cologne, Duesseldorf and Stuttgart just a month earlier as part of a wider expansion program in Virtue.

The group also said it will divest Foodpanda Japan in the first quarter of 2022 to focus on other growth priorities within the group.
