Waitrose has just launched online shopping in the UAE
There are 15,000 products available to order online…
Waitrose & Partners has launched a new online shopping site in the UAE, bringing 15,000 products to homes in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The first of its kind outside the UK, the UAE site will feature all the quality groceries the British retailer is known for.
Shop for fresh meat and poultry in the butchery section, or local and imported fish from the seafood counter, all handily labelled with their country of origin.
There’s also an extensive selection of fresh fruits and vegetables; rolls, cakes and loaves from the bakery; and pantry staples such as pasta, cereals and condiments.
Ready-made meals and frozen foods take the hassle out of midweek cooking, while the seriously impressive selection of cheeses and deli goods were made for weekend entertaining. Tucked away in the ‘kiosk’ section, you’ll find a range of meats that are suitable for non-Muslims.
Beyond the grocery aisles, there’s also a neat list of toiletries, health products, cosmetics cleaning goods and pet care.

If you’re stuck for cooking inspiration, the website offers a list of recipes – you can even opt to have all of the ingredients added directly to your shopping cart.
The delivery service is launching today, with 2,800 delivery spaces available each week. There are three time slots available every day, and you’ll need to book in your slot at least two hours in advance.
It’s a minimum spend of Dhs100, and delivery is free for orders over Dhs350. If you spend less than Dhs350, there’s a flat delivery fee of Dhs15.
Late last week, Waitrose announced that it would start charging for single-use plastic bags, with proceeds going to Emirates Nature-WFF.
