The impugned rate-rigging occurred via phone calls and secret online chat rooms using names including the "Cartel", "Bandits' Club", "Mafia", "Three Musketeers", "A-Team", and "Three Way Banana Split".

Australians are relying too heavily on the convenience of food delivered via online services like Ubereats and Deliveroo, resulting in unhealthy eating choices.

The Cancer Council LiveLighter surveyed 2,000 people and found that over half of Australians spend more money and chose less healthy options when ordering food online compared to what they would cook at home.

Campaign Manager, Alison McAleese, said the annual survey revealed that an increased move towards delivery food is disrupting Australians’ efforts to stay healthy.

Online food ordering is the process of ordering food through the restaurant's own website or mobile app, or through a multi-restaurant's website or app.

“We want Aussies to realise convenience eating comes at a price, not just to their wallets, but more importantly their health,” Ms McAleese said.

Most Australians admitted they spent more money, while 62 per cent chose an option less healthy when ordering food online in comparison to what they would cook themselves.

Results also revealed when eating at fast food outlets, a third of respondents said they consumed larger serving sizes than they’d normally eat at home, with half also adding soft drink to their meal.

Recent reports from online food ordering platforms confirmed the growing trend of mobile apps and online ordering technology and further highlight how many Australians find themselves falling back on foods made outside their homes.

“Last year, on one online food delivery site alone Australian’s made 7,000 online orders every hour– that’s a whopping two orders every second," Ms McAleese said.

"A report from another platform revealed we scoffed down more than 83 million McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets in just 12 months."
