To us, convenience food means enabling easier access to high-quality and sustainable choices while reducing the environmental impact of grocery shopping.

Through our investment in Buymie, Ireland’s leading same-day grocery delivery company, we’re enabling thousands of people to have easier access to high-quality foods, demonstrating that convenience doesn’t have to mean compromise.

Buymie provides a unique same-day concierge delivery service – in as little as one hour – via its mobile app and is partnered with major grocers, such as Tesco, Lidl, Dunnes, Co-op and ASDA.

In addition to empowering consumers by providing easier access to fresh groceries and sustainable food choices, Buymie is focussed on limiting the use of secondary plastic packaging. By combining multiple orders and optimising deliveries, it also helps to reduce private car journeys.

The business has expanded dramatically to meet the increasing demand for grocery home delivery, a trend which has grown during the Covid-19 pandemic, and recently launched in the UK.

We wanted to work with Wheatsheaf because its knowledge of the food and agriculture supply chain means it is excellently placed to support us in scaling up our business. Most importantly, their deep long-term focus and commitment to the food industry aligns heavily with our own."
