New tie-up sees thousands of grocery lines made available for swift delivery across the UK

The Co-op and Just Eat have teamed up to launch an on-demand online delivery partnership, boosting access to quick, convenience shopping in communities nationwide.

Initially rolling-out to 50 stores early next year, the service is expected to expand to over 1,000 Co-op stores by spring 2023. Through the tie-up, shoppers will be able to order items from Co-op for delivery in as little as under 30 minutes via the Just Eat app and website.

The arrangement sees thousands of products made available, and includes everything from ready meals to store cupboard essentials directly picked from local Co-op stores. Shoppers will also have access to offers and promotions from branded and own-label lines, and Just Eat will then take care of the delivery through its network of couriers across the UK.

Amy Heather, strategic accounts director at Just Eat UK, said: “We’re excited to launch our partnership with Co-op to offer convenience grocery from their stores to customers across the UK. The partnership will bring our customers access to a wide range of fantastic Co-op products delivered to their home within minutes. This partnership is another example of Just Eat’s commitment to grocery in the UK and we know that Co-op will be a popular addition for our customers.”

Chris Conway, ecommerce director at Co-op, added: “Co-op stores are well placed in local communities to provide quick, easy and convenient home deliveries – whether a full shop or last-minute top-ups. We are committed to exploring new and innovative ways to increase access to our products and services and, with our members and customers leading busy lives, ease, speed and convenience is a cornerstone of our approach.

“We are delighted to announce our partnership with Just Eat, a move which will enable Co-op to ‘deliver’ further flexible options online with increased choice and availability in our communities, however and whenever our customers choose to shop with us.”
