Tesco is trialling a one-hour grocery delivery service in central London.

According to MCA’s sister title The Grocer, the supermarket chain is testing the Tesco Now app for customers in zones one and two, offering 60-minute delivery on orders of up to 20 products.

Delivery is supplied by independent courier service Quiqup, which already has deals with companies including Whole Foods, Burger King and Hungryhouse, and is free of charge while the app is in testing phase.

A Tesco spokeswoman confirmed to The Grocer the supermarket was trialling the one-hour service among a “small number of colleagues and customers”. “We’re always looking at new ways to improve the service we offer our customers,” she said.
