Jumbo expands its meal delivery service

Date : 17 January 2020

After trialling an online meal order service in Groningen in September 2019, Jumbo has announced it will expand the service to additional locations.

Utrecht and Amsterdam, from February 2020

The retailer is operating the service in collaboration with the meal order site Thuisbezorgd.nl. As part of the service, shoppers can order freshly prepared meals, drinks and other food products to their homes or offices. They can also choose to collect their orders from the Jumbo City store in Stationsplein in Eindhoven.

…To “be where the customer is”

Ton van Veen, Jumbo’s CFO, commented: “At Jumbo, we want to be where the customer is, so delivering freshly prepared meals at home or work is a logical step for us. Moreover, we see that the demand for tasty and healthy meals is growing strongly. With the freshly prepared products from the in-house Fresh Kitchen of our Jumbo Foodmarkt and Jumbo City locations, we can answer that question excellently.”
