UK supermarket giant Waitrose has acquired Dishpatch, a meal-kit delivery service that provides restaurant-quality home dining.


Dishpatch, founded in 2020, replicates a restaurant experience without leaving the house with chef-designed dishes, with collaborations with respected chefs including Angela Hartnett, Michel Roux Jr, Rick Stein and others.


Dishpatch provides customers with more than 40 menus, with food and wine delivered on Friday to provide weekend meals. Dishpatch stands out from other meal kit companies as its dishes come pre-prepared with only a few steps to finish and serve.


James Bailey, executive director for Waitrose, said: “Waitrose sees significant opportunities for Dishpatch, which works with some of Britain’s most respected chefs and restaurants. We have shared values in serving our customers the best quality food and we’re looking forward to working together.”


He continued: “While our immediate focus will be helping Dishpatch grow its core meal kit business, we are also looking forward to working with the team to bring further new and exciting food experiences to Waitrose customers”.


Peter Butler, founder and CEO of Dishpatch, added: “Since launching in 2020, our mission at Dishpatch has always been to bring the most exciting, high-quality restaurant food into more people's lives. We're thrilled to be partnering with Waitrose whose reputation has been built on the quality of their food. With such aligned values, we're excited to bring our meal kits to a wider audience and exploring new opportunities beyond that."


Under the transaction, Peter Butler will continue as Dishpatch’s CEO. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
