Uber Eats has announced it is linking up with Coles to trial home deliveries of some of the supermarket giant’s ready-to-eat meals.
The food delivery platform said the experiment would start on Tuesday at a Coles in the southern Sydney suburb of Pagewood and customers would be able to order items such as roast chicken, deli salads, bakery items and frozen desserts as well as ready-to-heat meals including pizzas, curries and pies.
“We believe this trial will complement the current Coles Online offering by delivering meals in an average of less than 30 minutes, which can be tracked in the Uber Eats app from the time of order to drop-off,” Uber Eats regional general manager Jodie Auster said in a statement.
“Coles will be the first supermarket to partner with Uber Eats in Australia, giving our customers healthy choices at competitive prices delivered right to their door,” Coles Director of Fresh Food Alex Freudmann said.
The trial is restricted to Uber Eats customers ordering from the Coles Pagewood store and has a delivery fee of $5 per order.
