UberEATS has partnered with Food Lover’s Market to change the way South Africans eat. Starting in October, the UberEATS app can 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.
On the retail partnership - which is a first for UberEATS - 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 Food 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.
Food Lover’s Market meal kits start at R160, with recipes ranging from topside roast to spaghetti Bolognese. To order, follow the instructions below:
