Foodservice company Sysco Canada, has launched an online platform that allows consumers to purchase "restaurant-quality grocery items" called [email protected].
Customers can choose from a variety of bulk grocery products including custom cut meats, poultry, fresh produce, freezer and pantry staples, household supplies and more. Shoppers simply place an order online, choose a pick-up time, and upon arrival, grocery orders will be placed directly into shoppers' trunks.
"With [email protected], consumers can purchase high quality grocery items – providing both a convenient source for grocery staples that may currently be hard to find and a great opportunity to elevate your at-home food experience. As a part of our Foodies Unite initiative, Sysco Canada will also donate 15 meals for every [email protected] order to hunger relief organizations through May 4th, 2020," says Randy White, president of Sysco Canada.
The service is available in all major cities across Canada supporting communities that are experiencing a 38 percent increase on average in retail grocery shopping due to social distancing behaviours.
