The public’s growing appetite for home food deliveries has prompted Yodel and recipe box company Gousto to extend their partnership.

The parcel carrier is expected to make at least three million food parcel deliveries to doorsteps every year as a result of the new agreement, with customers receiving regular updates and two-hour delivery windows.

Online shopping has boomed in recent months as the public has been asked to stay at home and Yodel said it was currently carrying over 200,000 food deliveries a week.

Sam Holden, Yodel chief commercial officer said: “The boom in independent food deliveries has been one of the inspiring storylines in retail as consumers explore new, convenient ways to get a greater variety of high-quality meals.”

Gousto’s supply chain director Jamie Clark said: “As more and more people show appetite for getting fresh ingredients delivered to their door, we’re looking forward to building on our long-term partnership with Yodel to get delicious recipes direct to the customer’s doorstep.”

Yodel delivers around 150 million parcels per year on behalf of around 1,000 clients.
