As the country gradually comes out of its third national lockdown, Britons can once again enjoy meeting up with family and friends outdoors, in groups of up to six or in a group of any size from up to two households. Morrisons has marked the occasion with launching new food boxes as well as a platter option for customers to enjoy. 

The Family Picnic Food Box includes everything you need to make the perfect picnic.

From cocktail sausages to brownie bites, the box includes options for adults as well as children. 

The box costs £26 and includes next day or nominated day delivery.

The Luxury Ploughman’s Food Box includes slightly more expensive food items like champagne truffles and sourdough crackers.

Morrisons says that this option is perfect for a romantic date during the day or an outdoor birthday celebration.

The box also has olives as well as the option to upgrade to include Prosecco or champagne. 

Customers can purchase the box for £30 on its own or £35 with Prosecco and £45 with champagne. 

Like all of Morrisons’ other boxes, the prices include next day or nominated day delivery.

The last new addition to the supermarket’s food box selection is a food platter.

The Adult Picnic Platter for two costs just £10 and it can be pre-ordered and collected from stores across the country. 

It includes hand-prepared scones, quiche lorraine and cherry bakewells. 

Aidan Buckley, Food Box, Eat Fresh & Food to Order Director at Morrisons said: “We know our customers will be excited to get out into the sun and meet up with friends and family that they haven’t been able to see during lockdown. 

“Whether planning a classic picnic or a luxury spread, these two new food boxes offer something for everyone to share and enjoy in the park or back garden.” 

The food boxes can be purchased on the Morrisons food boxes website while the platter is available to order on the Morrisons Food to Order website.
