Co-op partners with Just Eat to provide rapid customer delivery

Central England Co-op has entered into a partnership with Just Eat as it continues to provide convenient options for its customers and members to receive their groceries straight to their door.

The collaboration initially begins with 10 of the retailer’s food stores across its trading area, with Just Eat customers in those locations able to get their groceries delivered from their local Central England Co-op.

Shoppers choose items using the app which are then picked and packed at the nearby store by local colleagues before being delivered to them via Just Eat’s network of delivery drivers.

Customers ordering via Just Eat have access to over 1,500 products including everyday groceries, drinks and snacks. Now, shoppers in the area have the opportunity to top up their weekly shop with forgotten items, get those essentials for their evening meal or treat themselves to something special.

Claire Koziol, Head of Stores at Central England Co-op, said: “We’re excited to partner with Just Eat to give our customers and members in these 10 initial locations a quick and easy way to get their groceries delivered to their door in quick time.

“We are committed to making it as easy as possible for our customers to shop with us and this partnership gives us the opportunity to not only provide another option for our communities but also work with a recognised and respected brand in home delivery.”

Andrew Kenny, Managing Director UK at Just Eat, said, “We’re excited to further expand Just Eat’s grocery offering.

'With over 60,000 restaurant and grocery partners on the Just Eat platform and an extensive delivery reach across 95% of the UK, this partnership with Central England Co-op marks the next stage in Just Eat’s commitment to delivering the best service and range of options for our customers.”

The partnership comes as demand for on-demand grocery deliveries is on the rise in the UK and follows Just Eat Takeaway.com’s global commitment to expanding and building on its extensive existing delivery network, including through convenience grocery operations.
