M&S adds 3 new food boxes as it ramps up capacity to 2500 deliveries a week

Marks & Spencer is significantly ramping up its capacity to deliver food boxes to customers in lockdown to over 2500 each week.

M&S is repurposing its clothing and home distribution networks to begin fulfilling and delivering its food boxes, which it launched in March.

According to the brand this means they can now deliver 2500 boxes every week while maintaining worker safety and social distancing at its warehouses.

It is also introducing three new food boxes to its range including a new Mixed Vegetable Box for £15, a Mixed Select Vegetable Box for £17 and a Seasonal Fruit Box for £20.

“Following the successful launch of our online Food Boxes, we have added three new online Food Box options to help customers get more of the products they need and support those who aren’t able to easily visit stores during this unprecedented time,” it said.

The retailer will charge an extra £3.99 for delivery, but says all boxes will be delivered contact-free.

Customers will be limited to one of each box option per order, and priority access had been given to customers over 70.

Earlier this month Morrisons announced similar measures to “dramatically” ramp up production of its food boxes from 10,000 a week to 100,000 per week.
