Morrisons and Deliveroo are announcing a partnership to enable customers to order from 70 essential household items from Morrisons stores for on-demand delivery.
Both Morrisons and Deliveroo want to play their full part in feeding the nation during this very difficult and uncertain period. From today, a new service will allow customers to order from a range of essentials delivered to their door, on-demand, by a Deliveroo rider in as little as under 30 minutes.
The move will be for the duration of the Covid-19 crisis. The new offer is important for families now staying at home and those unable to order speedy delivery from supermarkets due to high demand.
All deliveries will be contact-free to ensure safety, with Deliveroo riders leaving the deliveries at customers' doors to collect, minimising person-to-person contact.
The service will be available from more than 130 Morrisons stores across the UK and covers one in four households (6.8 million). Customers will be able to order on the Deliveroo app or website, as normal, from a selection of around 70 items, including meat and Quorn, fruit and household essentials.
In an effort to ensure that customers can access essential items at affordable prices during the COVID pandemic, items will be priced the same as Morrisons stores and there will be a flat £4.99 delivery fee (unless customers have the Deliveroo Plus service).
Morrisons Chief Executive David Potts said: "Our partnership with Deliveroo will help us to continue to play our full part in feeding the nation. Customers will be able to order essential products from Morrisons biked by Deliveroo to the door in as little as under 30 minutes. 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."
Ajay Lakhwani, Vice President of New Business, Deliveroo said: "With families and vulnerable people in isolation, it is more important than ever that we make sure they have access to the essential household items they need. During this worrying period we want to play our role in making sure people have access to a range of items, in particular the vulnerable who cannot leave their homes."
This service is one of the ways that Morrisons is increasing home delivery to help vulnerable people and those affected by the Coronavirus. These measures include launching a new range of simple-to-order food parcels delivered to customers' doorstep and making more delivery slots available through Morrisons.com. Morrisons and Deliveroo will continue to support vulnerable customers during this difficult period.
