On-demand grocery delivery firm Beelivery has acquired counterpart Pinga for an undisclosed sum.

The business was also backed with a £2m investment from the venture capital arm of UKTV, whose channels include Dave, Gold and Yesterday, in April last year.

Beelivery said it is now set to acquire over 5,000 customers as a result of the deal.

Beelivery’s joint CEO and co-founder Yazan Bin Mohamed said: “This acquisition enables Beelivery to leverage the driver capacity and loyal customers of Pinga in Central London and extend our lead in this competitive market.

“The company is now exploring further M&A deals, and in particular we are now open towards further strategic alignment with our closest competitors.

“We are open towards mergers or strategic acquisition in the UK or worldwide while we are raising our £25m round.”
