In a consumer survey conducted by Deliveroo in 2021, 75% of respondents expected using food delivery services more regularly in the future[1]. Noticing the raising trend in food and on-demand grocery deliveries, Reckitt partners with Deliveroo to ensure over 6,000 rider fleets and the food and grocery delivering journey are protected. In addition, Dettol Disinfectant Zones are set up at all eight Deliveroo Editions[2] across Hong Kong to avoid virus transmission from shared surfaces when consumers pick up their takeaways from August. Starting from mid-September, Dettol products will be provided on grocery deliveries to encourage consumers to maintain good hygiene habits[3]. Stay tune to Deliveroo’s updates for more details.

Our new partnership will not only provide better protection for Deliveroo fleets, but will further enhance consumer confidence in our hygiene practices, making us the delivery platform that people turn to when they want a healthy and delicious meal. Against the backdrop of the fast-changing pandemic situation, we will continue to ensure that our fleet and customers get the right equipment to stay safe and healthy.

In view of the growing demand on courier services driven by the increasing online sales volume in Hong Kong, Reckitt partners with SF Express to set up Dettol Disinfectant Zones at all 88 SF Stores across Hong Kong, creating a rest assured parcel collection experience to consumers. Consumers can disinfect their parcels with Dettol Disinfection Spray and sanitise their hands with Dettol Hand Sanitiser upon pick-up, which can effectively kill 99.9%[5] of germs, including New Coronavirus[6].

To further enhance passenger’s experience with Uber Taxi, Uber and Reckitt join hands to offer Dettol Disinfectant Spray for Uber Taxi drivers to pick up at designated gas stations from now on until June 2023, aiming to help curb the spread of germs in the vehicles and to provide safe and comfortable travel journey for passengers.
