Under the motto “We deliver your concerns”, Colruyt is now delivering groceries at home to health care workers who have better things to do than shop in these extremely busy Corona times.
“The purchasing solution that we developed for hospital employees from March to May was received with tremendous support,” says Yves Van den Brande, who is responsible for Solucious, the Colruyt Group’s food service department, which is normally only open to professionals. During the first lockdown, Colruyt delivered groceries to the parking lots of 13 hospitals.
Now the initiative goes much further: From now on, the food will be delivered at home (at a fixed cost of 10 euros, wherever in Belgium) and the service is not only aimed at medical staff in hospitals. Nursing home and reception staff, including administrative and support services, can use these as well as independent care providers.
