Aldi teams up with Deliveroo on online grocery delivery service
Aldi has teamed up with Deliveroo on the piloting of an on-demand grocery home delivery service.
The supermarket has begun offering rapid delivery in as little as 30 minutes from its Daleside Road store in Nottingham. If successful, the trial will be extended to a further seven stores across the East Midlands.
Customers are able to order from a choice of over 150 Aldi products through the Deliveroo app. These are then picked and packed by Aldi staff in-store for delivery via Deliveroo’s network of riders. The initial range of products available includes essential items such as bread, milk and fresh produce.
If the service is successful, Aldi said it could roll it out to further stores by the end of 2020.
The trial follows Aldi’s recent move into online food parcels which were introduced to help self-isolating and vulnerable customers during the coronavirus crisis. Priced at £23.99 inclusive of delivery, the parcels contain 22 products including tinned soup, rice and pasta.
Giles Hurley, Aldi chief executive for the UK and Ireland, said: “We hope the new trial with Deliveroo will provide more customers with access to great quality, affordable food at Aldi.
“This is a new and exciting venture for Aldi and we will be constantly reviewing how we can best serve our customers and continue to provide them with the high quality products they are used to in store.”
