Paris, March 31, 2022 - The Casino Group and Just Eat France are partnering to make life easier for French people, by giving them the opportunity to have food delivered to their door in 30 minutes. Through the partnership with the Casino Group in France, Just Eat is able to meet consumer expectations even better.
This partnership expands the range of services already offered to Just Eat customers in France and will make thousands of everyday products from the Casino Group brands available on its platform, for delivery within 30 minutes. This agreement covers all of the Group's French food brands, in particular Franprix, Monoprix, Vival, Le Petit Casino, La Nouvelle Cave, etc.
From today, customers will be able to choose on the Just Eat website and app from more than 400 products: savoury and sweet groceries, fruit & vegetables, fresh products, but also cleaning products for instance. The product catalogue will be expanded to several thousand products by the end of 2022.
The service is available in around ten Franprix stores in Paris and will be expanded to several hundred stores by the end of the year. Initially, the partnership involves major cities such as Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Toulouse, Nice and Bordeaux, and will cover the entire metropolitan area in the coming months.
The Casino Group will rely on the delivery service of Just Eat France for the deployment of this new offer. In the larger cities, couriers from Just Eat France will take care of the deliveries; in smaller cities, deliveries will be done by Stuart (subsidiary of DPD Group), a renowned partner of Just Eat in France.
For the Casino Group, this partnership is fully in line with its strategy aimed at developing the growing food e-commerce segment and offering more local services to its customers.
For Just Eat France, this partnership with the Casino Group marks the entry of Just Eat into the grocery business in the French market, which is a natural extension of Just Eat’s food delivery business. The urban positioning and the diversity of the Casino Group brands were a determining factor in the development of this partnership.
In recent months, Just Eat Takeaway.com, which operates in 23 countries, has accelerated its growth in the fast-growing grocery and convenience delivery segment by signing strategic partnerships with retailers such as 7-Eleven, Asda, One-Stop, Coop, Shell, food.de, Grovy, Wuplo and Gorillas in Spain. In Canada, the company is also deploying Skip Express Lane, a dark store model.
