Continente Expands Partnership With Uber Eats

Portuguese retailer Continente has expanded its partnership with Uber Eats to include more than 40 stores in the greater Lisbon and greater Porto areas.

A range of take-away meals from Continente stores will now be available to customers through instant delivery, the retailer said.

Extra Convenience For Consumers

Continente aims to provide maximum convenience to customers through its partnership with Uber Eats, and is offering a number of exclusive recipes featuring the retailer's 'homemade' food assortment at affordable prices. 

Duck rice made with premium sausages, cod with cream with authentic flavours, or traditional Portuguese pork are just some of the more traditional dishes available on Uber Eats. The range also includes pasta, sandwiches, snacks, soups, and succulent roast chicken.

Continente isn't the only European retailer to team up with Uber Eats in recent months, with France's Groupe Casino and Carrefour among those to announce partnerships with the delivery firm.

Elsewhere, retailers such as Waitrose and Casino have also announced partnerships with Uber's rival in the delivery space, Deliveroo.

Home Delivery Segment

The partnership with Uber Eats strengthens Continente's position in the home delivery segment, the retailer said

The expansion will now allow Uber Eats to reach a further 25 stores in the Greater Lisbon area, 15 more stores in the Greater Porto area, and more than eight stores in the Setubal area. 

All Uber Eats orders are 100% contactless, meaning no direct contact between employees and users. In addition, between 7–20 July, the retailer is offering a special 'two for the price of one' promotion on all hot meals. 

Continente's objective is to continue to meet the needs of its customers and provide convenient alternatives that are simple and easy to use.

The brand seeks to deliver value propositions that can make life easier for its consumers, and the expansion of this partnership allows Continente's take-away meals to reach more people, the retailer said.
