Groupe Casino, Just Eat Unveil 30-Minute Delivery Platform In France

Groupe Casino and Just Eat France have signed a partnership that will see French consumers able to avail of 30-minute food deliveries, with the service initially being rolled out in Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Toulouse, Nice and Bordeaux.

The partnership covers all Casino's food banners, including Franprix, Monoprix, Vival, Le Petit Casino and La Nouvelle Cave, with shoppers able to choose from a selection of 400 SKUs.
