Co-op has significantly expanded its Deliveroo partnership and now offers delivery from 400 stores making it the most widely available supermarket on the app.
Deliveroo now offers a range of over 600 Co-op items for delivery in as little as 30 minutes to a combined population of 27 million people across the UK.
This major milestone follows a dramatic expansion of the tie-up this year in a bid to match skyrocketing demand for online deliveries during lockdown.
While the partnership has been running since 2019, Co-op announced in May that it was nearly doubling the number of stores working with Deliveroo to help “support shoppers” during the pandemic.
“We are offering speed, flexibility and choice with on demand, online convenience meeting consumer needs in our communities,” Co-op’s head of ecommerce Chris Conway said.
“We have accelerated our plans to roll-out online delivery through our own online store and with partners.
“Products are selected locally by Co-op stores which act as micro-distribution hubs and so also benefit from the significant increase seen in demand as consumer shopping trends change in the wake of Covid-19 and more people shop for food online.”
