Dishpatch, founded in 2020, replicates a restaurant experience without leaving the house with chef-designed dishes from the likes of Angela Hartnett, Michel Roux Jr, Rick Stein, Sabrina Ghayour and others.

Customers can choose from over 40 Dishpatch menus, with food and wine delivered nationally on Friday to have an indulgent weekend meal. The difference between Dishpatch and other meal kit companies is that all dishes come pre-prepared with only a few simple steps to finish and serve, to truly take the hassle out of high-end home dining.

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. 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.”
