Singapore-based grocery and food delivery company Honestbee has ceased all delivery operations in the Philippines starting Apr. 20, Saturday. If a user opens the app, they’ll encounter the below message:
On the same day delivery operations stopped, Honestbee released a post on its Facebook page that states: “As we work with our headquarters towards bringing the total business to a healthy and sustainable level, we unfortunately need to temporarily pause our local operations until further notice.”
Users were quick to inquire about deliveries that were made just before the suspension, and Honestbee assured them that all credit and debit card payments will be refunded.
This news comes after Tech in Asia reported a series of layoffs and resignations in the company.
The personal online shopping startup currently operates in Singapore, Taiwan, Japan, Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
