Aldi trials on-demand delivery with Deliveroo

Aldi is trialling on-demand grocery home delivery in the UK for the first time, in partnership with Deliveroo.

From today, the supermarket will offer a rapid delivery service from its Daleside Road store in Nottingham, before extending the trial to a further seven stores across the East Midlands in June. If successful, the rapid delivery service could roll out to further Aldi stores by the end of 2020.

Customers will be able to order from over 150 Aldi products through the Deliveroo app. These will be picked and packed by Aldi colleagues in-store, for delivery via the network of riders. It will initially offer a range of essential items - such as bread, milk and fresh produce - to be delivered to customers’ doorsteps in as little as 30 minutes.

The trials follow Aldi’s recent move into online food parcels, which were introduced to help self-isolating and vulnerable customers. Priced at £23.99 - inclusive of delivery - the parcels contain 22 products, including tinned soup, rice and pasta.

Giles Hurley, chief executive at Aldi UK and Ireland, said: “This is a new and exciting venture for Aldi and we will be constantly reviewing how we can best serve our customers and continue to provide them with the high quality products they are used to in store.”
