When it debuted in digital, iFood Brazil received about 12,000 orders per month. Just a year later, the delivery platform launched its website and application, which boosted orders to an average of 73,000 per month. The exponential growth of iFood Brazil and its bet on a diversified portfolio illustrate the potential of the Brazilian consumer market.

Social Qi took over management of the Não Breca Meu Trampo page and created at least two other related pages on Facebook and Instagram, along with at least eight fake accounts on Facebook and Twitter. Marketing executives from Benjamim Comunicação state how, in their view, the page was probably responsible for damaging Paulo Lima’s reputation and weakening his influence as one of the leading figures trying to get workers organized to push for better conditions. The strategy was to spread rumors that Galo was using the movement as a platform to get visibility and win a seat in public office, in spite of the fact that he was not running for office. Eight days after the mobilization, a page called Não Breca Meu Trampo (Don’t Hit The Brakes On My Work) appeared on Facebook. In ambitious plans, iFood aims to triple its restaurant count and double its workforce, especially in tech roles.
