To help UK consumers cope with the current lockdown, retailer Morrisons has partnered with Deliveroo to offer on-demand delivery in 30 minutes to families struggling to secure delivery slots. The partnership is aimed at expanding delivery capabilities, with Morrisons now offering 70 “essential household” items via the Deliveroo app. The service is available from over 130 Morrisons stores across the UK on new £35 lockdown food boxes
Morrisons chief executive, David Potts said,
“Our partnership with Deliveroo will help us to continue to play our full part in feeding the nation. It’s a great combination of traditional and modern methods and it will provide more vulnerable people with the opportunity to receive their home delivery.”
Last week, Morrisons announced a similar partnership with DPD to provide next-day delivery of its £35 food boxes. The Meat Eaters Food Box and a Vegetarian Food Box contain enough chilled, fresh and tinned food items to feed a couple for up to a week. Over 200,000 orders have been fulfilled since the partnership was announced.
Deliveroo announced a similar partnership this week with McColl’s to offer “contact free” delivery from over 120 stores.
