Deliveroo has partnered with Morrisons to supply households with everyday essentials during the coronavirus pandemic.

Customers will be able to order from 70 essential household items from Morrisons as part of the on-demand delivery from Deliveroo. Orders can be made via the app or online.

Goods include meat and Quorn, fruit, vegetables, store cupboard items and other essentials.

Its available from more than 130 Morrisons stores across the UK and covers one in four households (6.8 million).

Deliveries can be made within 30 minutes and items will cost the same as they are in Morrisons. However, customers will be charged a flat £4.99 delivery fee (unless customers have the Deliveroo Plus service).

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.

The partnership will be available for the duration of the Covid-19 crisis.

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

Ajay Lakhwani, vice president of new business, Deliveroo, said: “With families and vulnerable people in isolation, it is more important than ever that we make sure they have access to the essential household items they need. During this worrying period we want to play our role in making sure people have access to a range of items, in particular the vulnerable who cannot leave their homes.”
