Nestlé UK has announced it has joined forces with Deliveroo’s Essentials delivery platform in a deal that will allow the company’s confectionery and other products to be delivered direct to consumers.

The deliveries will be available from 11 Deliveroo Edition sites in Leeds, London, Manchester and Nottingham and will include a variety of chocolate, sweets or snacks, including KitKat two finger bars, Fruit Pastilles and San Pellegrino, along with coffee products.

Alexandre Manoukian, e-commerce lead for Nestlé Professional, said: “With people not able to just pop to the shop as easily on their lunch break for their favourite drink or snack, it made complete sense for us to be able to work with Deliveroo to bring it directly to their door​.

Deliveroo offers a completely contactless delivery so it means even those having to self-isolate can enjoy a well-deserved treat​.”

The move comes after Nestlé reported a quarterly sales growth in March​, its best in almost five years, driven by increased consumer stockpiling of its coffee, frozen food and pet food brands during the coronavirus restrictions.

Deliveroo is an online food delivery company founded in 2013 by Will Shu and Greg Orlowski. Based in London, England, it operates in two hundred cities in the UK, the Netherlands, France, Belgium, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Australia, Singapore, United Arab Emirates, Hong Kong and Kuwait.

Arabella Jenkins at Deliveroo said: "When you can't justify popping to the shop just for a KitKat to get you through the final hours of your working day, Deliveroo is here to deliver a range of Nestlé snacks and drinks to your door in as little as under 30 minutes​."
