UK based supermarket retailer Sainsbury’s has signed a partnership agreement with takeaway food app Just Eat for rapid grocery deliveries.
According to an article in Retail Gazette, the partnership will allow Sainsbury’s customers to benefit from 30-minute deliveries. In a first phase, the service will be available in London, Edinburgh and Bristol, launching in 175 stores by the end of February 2023, although Sainsbury’s plans to extend the service to additional cities over the course of the year.
Commenting on the move, Just Eat director of strategic accounts Amy Heather said: “Just Eat’s grocery offering is going from strength to strength and continues to be an area of significant focus. We’re excited to be working with Sainsbury’s to bring even more choice and flexibility to our customers when ordering the food and products they want, when they want”.
This is Just Eat’s second partnership with one of the UK’s major supermarket chains. In January 2022, the food delivery firm partnered with Asda as part of its commitment to expand and build its delivery network, including through convenience grocery operations. Globally, Just Eat also has partnerships with brands such as Spar, Shell and 7-Eleven.
