Marks & Spencer has partnered with Asian food-delivery giant Foodpanda to begin delivering its food to Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia.
Foodpanda, which works much like Deliveroo here in the UK, will now offer 300 M&S food and drink items through its app in these markets.
Customers in Hong Kong and Singapore can access the service immediately, while customers in Malaysia will have to wait until the end of the month, and the pair have said the range may differ from market to market.
“We know our customers across Asia are passionate about Marks & Spencer Food, which is why we’ve partnered with Foodpanda to help get them the products they need as well as supporting those who currently aren’t able to visit stores easily,” M&S Asia’s chief executive Christine Choi said.
Like Deliveroo, Foodpanda started out delivering takeaway meals for restaurants, but has recently ventured into grocery delivery with the launch of its dedicated service Pandamart.
In March M&S announced that it was offering online delivery of its food for the first time in its history amid a new partnership with Deliveroo.
High demand for home deliveries during lockdown has encouraged the retailer to further expand the number of stores offering grocery delivery from around 120 to 142.
