It’s a thing – and we are excited, Hello Joburgers! One of our fave eat in apps UberEATS app can now be used to order a meal kit – comprising fresh ingredients and an easy-to-follow recipe from the country’s largest specialist fresh produce retailer – and have it delivered at Uber speed. YES shout all the busy moms and career women (including the bulk of our office!)
This is a first for UberEATS and the General Manager for South Africa, Nic Robertson, says: “Food Lover’s Market is the first national retailer to come on board to deliver meal kits on demand. Our aim has always been to innovate and evolve the food delivery industry and this partnership has enabled us to do just that. With both Food Lover’s Market and UberEATS being committed to providing consumers with convenience, quality and variety, the synergies between the two brands made our decision to partner a natural one.”
Brian Coppin, CEO of Food Lover’s Market, adds, “this was really a no-brainer for us. Our Love Movement marketing campaign was designed to get South Africans back into the kitchen and cooking delicious food for their loved ones – despite the fast pace of everyday life. Partnering with UberEATS affords us the opportunity of offering our customers the convenience of ordering their meal kits on the go, without going into a store when they are time deficient. The same delicious Food Lover’s Market ingredients, but delivered to your door.”
The partnership will not only redefine the future of food delivery, but also cooking – enabling anyone to instantly become a pro chef at the tap of a button. So, the Food Lover’s Market meal kits start at R150, with recipes ranging from topside roast to spaghetti Bolognese.
*Initially meal kits will only be available for request from the following Food Lover’s Market stores: Nicolway and Chilli on Top – more to follow soon…
