Uber Eats partners with retailers to deliver groceries – FT

Uber Technologies Inc.'s online food-delivery platform Uber Eats has teamed up with retailers to expand its service to offer delivery of household essentials, the Financial Times reported April 1.

Uber Eats head Pierre-Dimitri Gore-Coty a few weeks ago reportedly set up a new team focused on grocery deliveries in response to the coronavirus outbreak, according to the report. The team is looking to tie up with supermarkets and convenience store groups and to modify its app to include grocery orders.

French supermarket operator Carrefour SA reportedly will offer fresh food including fruit and vegetables, bread, cheese, and meats through the Uber Eats app from 15 stores in Paris. Uber is teaming up with Portuguese energy group Galp Energia SGPS SA to deliver items from convenience stores across its network of gas stations in Spain, the Financial Times reported.

In Brazil, Uber reportedly will deliver products from pharmacies and pet stores. According to the report, retailers will set the price of the items available on Uber Eats.

Uber did not immediately respond to S&P Global Market Intelligence's request for comment.

The San Francisco-based company reportedly is looking to mitigate the decline in its ride-hailing business over the impact of the coronavirus outbreak. Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said March 19 the company had frozen hiring and was pulling back $150 million in incentives and marketing.
