Fortnum’s biscuit and confectionery favourites are also available, including Toffolossus Biscuits and Medium Pink Marc De Champagne Truffle Drum, as well as Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate, Royal Tea blends and delicious Preserves. Available during store opening times until 7pm (6pm on Sundays).
Of course, catering for those looking for exceptional gifts and treats at speed, the SUPPER London app also offers delivery of Fortnum’s famous Hampers. Available hampers include: The Birthday Hamper, The Piccadilly Hamper, and The Fortnum’s Express Hamper, as well as seasonal products including The Spring Gift Box, Six Eau de Nil Dark Chocolate Praline Eggs and The Sicilian Almond & Dark Chocolate Easter Egg.
Using revolutionary technology, including stabilisation systems, thermal lining and processors, customers can expect exceptional quality with items beautifully presented and packaged, to echo their experience in store.
Tom Athron, Fortnum & Mason CEO comments: “We are excited to pilot our rapid delivery service in London, offering customers a selection of our most popular products. It’s still early days with further refinements to come but given the incredible online growth we saw last year and with customers’ shopping habits changing, we want to offer customers more opportunities to experience Fortnum’s, whether it be at our stores or in their own home.”
Peter Georgiou, SUPPER London’s Founder, added: “We are thrilled to be Fortnum & Mason’s rapid delivery partner, giving our customers exclusive access to Fortnum’s luxury retail products, fresh produce and fine dining experiences, in under two hours.
