Co-op has struck a deal with Just Eat.

In a move set to increase its online delivery reach to more communities nationwide, the convenience retailer will be trialling Just Eat across 50 stores early next year. The service is expected to expand to over 1,000 Co-op stores by spring.

The tie-up means shoppers can access Co-op’s goods in as little as under 30 minutes via the Just Eat app and website. Available products range from ready meals to store cupboard essentials, as well as offers and promotions on Co-op’s own-label brand.

Just Eat will handle the delivery through its growing network of couriers across the UK.

“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,” said Co-op e-commerce director Chris Conway.

“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.”

Just Eat UK strategic accounts director Amy Heather 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 Co-op will be a popular addition for our customers.”

The Co-op also continues to work with Deliveroo and Uber Eats.
