Waitrose launches tie-up with Deliveroo as it embarks on future without Ocado

Waitrose Deliveroo trial

Waitrose has announced a partnership with Deliveroo as it prepares its ecommerce arm for life without Ocado.

The grocer has unveiled a 12-week trial with the home delivery app, which it said would give “over half a million households” access to Waitrose food delivered to their homes in half an hour or less. 

More than 500 Waitrose products will be available on Deliveroo as part of the trial, which will start on September 1 from stores in Bracknell, Berkshire, and Clifton, Bristol.

The trial will then be further rolled out on September 3 to Surbiton in southwest London, Fitzroy Street in Cambridge and Notting Hill in west London.
