Trade Me dishes up Trade Me Eats
Trade Me has announced it will be bringing local Kiwi kai to hungry New Zealanders around the country with the launch of Trade Me Eats.
Trade Me spokesman Paul Ford said it felt like the right time for the company to launch a member-to-member food delivery business. “You can buy cars, houses, couches and even find a job on Trade Me, so why not your dinner too? We think there’ll be a real appetite for this.
“Heaps of our members are brilliant cooks and we want them to be able to share their foodie creations with the rest of New Zealand. We’re also on the hunt for a Head of Eating to run this new business.”
Mr Ford said hungry Trade Me members will have access to “hundreds of morsels”. Early sign-ups have confirmed Pete’s possum pie, Anton’s Kaikoura crayfish and Sarah’s Kerikeri pavlova will be on the menu.
“Any foodie with a Trade Me account will be able to list and purchase food while we take care of the delivery,” he added.
Mr Ford said there would be a number of categories on the Trade Me Eats site. “It will include new items, used items, hot items, cold items, half-eaten items and artisan items. We’ll advise members on how to ensure their food is best packaged and sent too.”
Trade Me members can register their interest to join Trade Me Eats and become a kai partner via our Facebook page. The food delivery service will launch on 31 April 2018.
