Brussels residents can have their groceries delivered by Deliveroo for the first time this weekend. Later this month, the service will expand to Liège, Antwerp and Ghent.
The supermarket chain Carrefour and the meal courier Deliveroo are joining forces from this weekend. They will announce this on Friday. Carrefour customers can order groceries via the Deliveroo app and have them delivered to their home in 30 minutes. They have a choice of 1,200 products, including fruit, meat, milk, snacks, cleaning products and alcohol.
Both companies are convinced that the service is suitable ‘for every budget and every occasion’, both for large purchases and for a forgotten carton of eggs. Each delivery costs 5 euros and will be prepared by a Carrefour employee. In addition, customers can also choose to pick up their groceries in the store after ten minutes for free.
For now, only Carrefour’s Brussels customers can experiment with home delivery. Later this month it will be the turn of Liège, Antwerp and Ghent. If that turns out to be a success, smaller cities will follow.
For Carrefour it is not the first collaboration with a home delivery service. Since November, the chain in our country has been working with UberEats, although for the time being this only happens in Liège and Brussels. The intention is to expand this to other cities as well.
For Deliveroo this is a Belgian first. Abroad, the home delivery service has already worked with big names, such as Monoprix and Picard in France, Carrefour and Fresco in Italy, and Marks & Spencers in Hong Kong, Singapore and the United Arab Emirates.
