Morrisons has partnered with online food delivery platform, Deliveroo, to ensure that the supply of essential items to customers goes undisrupted during the coronavirus pandemic.

The partnership will enable customers to order from seventy essential household items from more than 130 Morrisons stores for on-demand delivery.

The move will be for the duration of the COVID-19 crisis, the Bradford-headquartered supermarket said.

All deliveries will be contact-free to ensure safety, with Deliveroo riders leaving the deliveries at customers’ doors to collect, minimising person-to-person contact.

“Our partnership with Deliveroo will help us to continue to play our full part in feeding the nation,” said Morrisons Chief Executive David Potts.

“Customers will be able to order essential products from Morrisons biked by Deliveroo to the door in as little as under 30 minutes.

“It’s a great combination of traditional and modern methods and it will provide more vulnerable people with the opportunity to receive their home delivery.”
