Dukes grocery has said it will have ready-to-go food on shelves within a week, with a new delivery service also in the works.
The company, which is the first company to offer an online grocery delivery service in Ireland, said on Monday it had started its delivery service for Dukes on Tuesday.
The grocery giant has been working on the rollout of its online grocery service in the country since January, and on Friday, it started delivering food to the country’s supermarkets in a bid to increase competition.
In the meantime, it is preparing to launch its first delivery service to Dublin’s King’s Cross in late March.
The delivery service is set to be available to customers in the first quarter of 2019.
It is unclear if Dukes will be able to deliver in the second quarter of the year.
Online shopping, the first phase of which is expected to be completed by 2020, is expected in the third quarter of 2020.
The food delivery service has been launched by Dukes and the Irish Farmers’ Federation, which has been involved in the delivery of food in the US and in Canada.
The two organisations have agreed on the terms of the deal and will work together on the delivery system.
Dukes said it would start the delivery service on Tuesday and the service will be available for customers from Monday, March 13, 2020.
It said that its food service would be delivered to the supermarket from the first of April, which would take place on Monday, April 20.
It added that it would also be available throughout the week from April 19 to April 20, 2020, which takes place on Friday.
In addition to the King’s Gate supermarket, the Dukes supermarket chain has a number of other outlets in Dublin and the North West.
