Aldi UK has been trialling home delivery from its Daleside Road store in Nottingham since yesterday, 18 May, and says it will expand the trial to the East Midlands from June if successful.
Customers can chose from 150 essential items, such as bread and milk, which will be picked by Aldi workers in-store and then delivered by Deliveroo drivers.
Aldi, Britain’s fifth biggest supermarket, said the trial was in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, which has left many people self-isolating at home. Aldi has already launched 'food parcels' of essential items that vulnerable customers and those self-isolating could order online.
If successful, Aldi said it hoped to roll out its partnership with Deliveroo nationwide by the end of 2020.
Last month, Deliveroo signed similar grocery deals with Marks & Spencer and Morrisons, while the on-demand delivery app also has a pre-existing deal with supermarket Co-op.
