(Dubai, UAE) - Owned and operated by Majid Al Futtaim in the UAE, Carrefour has partnered with Aster Pharmacy, a large pharmacy chain in the UAE, to deliver health and wellness across the UAE through its online marketplace platform. Carrefour customers can now have over-the-counter medication, health supplements, nutritional products and personal care items delivered alongside their grocery orders, answering all their food, lifestyle, health and wellness needs with one knock at the door.

Carrefour will be leveraging its extensive express fleet to process and deliver orders from over 200 Aster Pharmacies in less than 90 minutes across the UAE. All non-prescription products are now available through the digital Aster Pharmacy store on Carrefour marketplace, ensuring safety and credibility with each purchase.

“Carrefour’s online marketplace now homes Aster Pharmacy, bringing us one step closer to becoming a comprehensive, one-stop-shop for food and lifestyle,” said Hani Weiss, Chief Executive Officer at Majid Al Futtaim Retail. “With Carrefour marketplace sales tripling between Q1 and Q2, this partnership represents the shift towards online shopping that retail has experienced over the past year. Our marketplace solution drives our Connected Retail Partnership programme by allowing other businesses to connect with Carrefour customers and revolutionizing operations in the region. The new, virtual drugstore will ensure that Carrefour can meet all of its customers’ needs as we continue to provide a digital e-commerce platform for sellers across the UAE.”

Commenting on the partnership Alisha Moopen, Deputy Managing Director of Aster DM Healthcare said, “Aster Pharmacy is driven by the philosophy of ‘Healthiness is Happiness’ which is reflected in its efforts to make its health and wellness offerings easily available at the doorsteps of people in UAE. The partnership is in alignment with our digital and e-commerce plan to make our rich inventory of over 25,000 products easily accessible to our customers at the click of a button. We are glad to collaborate with Carrefour on our shared goal of providing a comprehensive lifestyle and wellness solution that enhances our customer’s lifestyle.”
