Tesco has launched an online delivered party food service that it said will cater for events of all sizes from formal celebrations to children’s parties.

Easy Entertaining - which Tesco described as a “one-stop-shop for customers’ party needs” - allows customers to order platters of hot or cold finger food, canapés, cooked meat, fish and sushi platters, plus hot main dishes such as lasagne and curry through Tesco.com. It also offers pre-selected party menus.

The service will initially be available in London, with orders delivered from four depots, in Enfield, Greenford, Aylesford and Croydon.

Like the Commuter Zone online ordering initiative launched by the retailer earlier this month, Easy Entertaining is part of Tesco.com and allows shoppers to access their Favourites.

“We think our customers will appreciate being able to buy party food alongside their regular online grocery shop, especially as we approach the Christmas party season,” said Tesco’s director of internet retailing Ken Towle.

  • How different would this be from customers just ordering party food along with their normal order? Are tesco saying they will provide additional party food lines? Would hot food be delivered hot/cooked?
    Would be good to be provided with more clarity on their offer.

  • This seems a great idea. Seems pretty cool! This would surely help many individuals who want to hold a party but don’t have time to prepare. This would be perfect for those individuals always on the go.

  • I love this idea. This would be beneficial for those individuals with busy schedules. But I wish their foods are delivered the way they are served in the restaurants.
