New Delhi, Aug 11: Some delivery partners of online restaurant guide and food ordering firm Zomato in Kolkata will go on strike from Monday as they are not willing to deliver pork and beef to customers, according to the company.
"There is a small group of partners in Howrah who have raised concerns, and we are looking to resolve the issue as quickly as possible," the company spokesperson said in a statement.
In a country as diverse as India, it is impossible to ensure that vegetarian and non-vegetarian preferences are factored into delivery logistics, the statement said.
"Delivery partners are unequivocally made to understand the practical nature of the job as they choose to enter the workforce. All our partners understand this," it said.

Bengaluru: A local court on Monday granted bail to seven Pro-Kannada activists who were arrested for attacking Jain building and taking down a Hindi banner in the city.
The bail application was heard by the court on Monday. The court then granted bail to the activists on surety of Rs. 50,000 and two persons.
The court also conditioned that the accused should not tamper with the evidences of the case and should co-operate with the investigation.
The accused told the court that their actions were only aimed for the betterment of Kannada and that's why they removed the Hindi banners to setup Kannada banners instead.
A complaint was filed against the activists for tearing banners with Hindi language in a Jain temple in Commercial Street Police Station limits on August 16, which was followed by arrest of six accused.
According to the regulations, at least 60% of the writing on signboards should be in Kannada, remaining 40% can be in English and other languages.
