An on-demand grocery delivery service has signed up housing provider One Manchester to support its most vulnerable customers.

Cheshire-based, which promises to deliver customers’ orders within 60 minutes of them being made, has been expanding its national delivery fleet since the first UK lockdown last year as demand for online groceries continued.

The start-up has now joined One Manchester as its newest corporate partner and has already supported 120 of its customers with typical Beelivery order of soup, bread, milk, pasta, sauce, tinned veg, biscuits, beans, cereal, coffee, tea, and sugar.

Lee Parkinson, co-founder and CEO of Beelivery, said: “Over the past year, we have been providing an essential service to people who were shielding, self-isolating or unable to get out of their homes due to the pandemic.

“Beelivery ensures customers receive their orders quickly, and we are looking forward to supporting One Manchester now and in the future.

“As we start to move out of lockdown and return to life as normal, it is important that we continue to support the most vulnerable people across the UK.

“Due to our large community of more than 50,000 drivers and our geographical reach of more than 90 per cent of UK population, we have the capacity to support more organisations similar to Manchester One in a similar way. We urge anyone interested in finding out more about how we can help to get in touch.”

Shaun Taylor, interim customer lead at One Manchester, said: “We chose to use Beelivery to support us in delivering essential items to our customers. The service covers all of our service areas, and allow us to help those in urgent need, as food parcels can be delivered in around 60 minutes.

“We’re extremely pleased with the convenient and reliable service we’ve received.”

Yazan Bin Mohammad, chairman and co-founder of Beelivery, added: “We are delighted that One Manchester has chosen Beelivery as their preferred partner and first port of call for their customers who need support in getting essential groceries delivered straight to their door as quickly as possible.”
