Yves Rocher, the French natural beauty brand, and Healthy U, a health food and supplement provider, have partnered with Uber Eats, allowing customers to get their favourite cosmetics and products delivered to their doors.
The partnership diversifies Uber Eats’ business model will also enable them to scale their business.
Yves Rocher joins the platform to bring faster and more convenient shopping to its customer base in Kenya.
This will make it accessible to an even larger and new demographic.
The Yves Rocher brand has more than 30 million customers and 3,100 stores around the globe.
The label organically farms with agroecology methods more than 60 hectares of fields for its plant-based products.
“We are excited and proud of these partnerships as it demonstrates UberEats’ commitment to Kenya and growing the local e-commerce landscape. While there can be no doubt that the stellar growth in demand for diverse on-demand delivery services has been catalyzed by COVID-19. We believe the pandemic merely accelerated a consumer trend that was already developing,” Kui Mbugua, General Manager of UberEats Kenya explained.
Established over 20 years ago, Healthy U was started with the mission to cultivate a culture of healthy eating and conscious living in Kenya.
The business is currently available across 30 stores in Kenya and Uganda.
Consumers will be able to leverage the UberEats app to order Healthy U products from various stores on the app. These are Sarit Centre, Westgate Mall, ABC Place, Lavington Mall, Yaya Centre and Junction Mall, Capital Centre and Village Market.
Catherine Nyakanini, Marketing and Communications Manager at Healthy U says, “As the pioneer of health and wellness in Kenya, our wish is to make health and wellness products available and accessible to Kenyans on a reliable and convenient platform like Uber Eats.”
