A range of 500 daily essentials will be available on-demand via the Uber Eats app including groceries, soft drinks, confectionery, snacks, beer, wine, toiletries and household goods.

The partnership is in line with our strategy to further strengthen our customer offer by making it easier than ever for customers to get their daily essentials, as well as helping to attract the younger generation of customers.”
