Integration of meal planning and grocery delivery helps consumers nationwide eat healthy at home while saving time and money
BIRMINGHAM, AL (December 21, 2016) – eMeals, America's leader in online meal planning, today announced a partnership with Instacart, the nation's largest grocery delivery service. Over the last 14 years, eMeals has curated millions of meals for families across the country. The combined solution removes the hassle of going to the grocery store and instead allows ingredients from eMeals recipes to be handpicked by a personal shopper at trusted local stores, then delivered to a subscriber's front door.
"We are proud to partner with Instacart to bring delivery to our subscribers. Instacart's services complement eMeals' strategic focus on solving the dinner dilemma," said Forrest Collier, CEO of eMeals. "It's estimated that the meal kit market will grow to a $10 billion industry over the next five years. Our integration with Instacart puts eMeals squarely on the forefront of that growth, enabling us to strengthen our offerings and increase customer value by saving them even more time and money and further simplifying their lives."
Unlike conventional meal kit options, the eMeals-Instacart partnership creates a complete solution that fits naturally into people's lifestyles and enables them to make healthy dinners at half the cost per serving for the average family. Cooking with eMeals and Instacart also provides more recipe variety, allows users to receive groceries from a local store and reduces unwanted packaging waste.
The process is simple:
eMeals is available nationwide for as low as $5 per month for a 12-month subscription or $10 per month for a 3-month subscription. eMeals users can optionally have their groceries delivered by Instacart in each of the 20 states that it currently services. Customers pay separately for the cost of ingredients and the optional Instacart delivery fee. As Instacart continues to expand its delivery services, these new markets will have immediate access to the eMeals integration.
