The best delivery companies in the UK

While at-home deliveries were already booming pre-Covid-19, the pandemic helped convenient and efficient online ordering options to become the norm.

In fact, international delivery service DPD delivered 1.9 million packages worldwide in 2020, an increase in half a billion compared to 2019.

Whether you’re looking for restaurant quality food delivered straight to your door, or need paracetamol ASAP, we’re looking at the best apps that can save you a trip to the shops.

Restaurant kits

Restaurant kit was founded by restaurant owners during the first lockdown. Their goal was to bring people joy through good company and good food, and at the same time giving restaurant’s staff something to do as well as to generate an income. Thanks to them the best food in the country was available to everyone in the UK, from Brighton to Newcastle.

The choices are endless from lobster rolls to crispy duck or Venimoo burger kit. Everything is easy to recreate at home, with simple instructions and great products.
