Is this company doing something illegal?
There is a new grocery delivery company in my area, they don't have a contract with Hannaford at all, but on this company's website they have products from Hannaford's in which they mark up by 25%, is this illegal for them to do? they say it's to cover the cost of their delivery service. how could they do this without a contract with the grocery store? I am not mad at them, im just more curious than anything
The grocery delivery company does not have a contract with the supermarkets because it says so on their frequently asked questions page on their website

No. It is not illegal for them to charge a higher price to cover the cost of their deliveries. The additional amount pays for their service. They do not have to have a contract with the grocery store to purchase their items and then deliver them to you.

They send someone to the store to BUY the items, and then resell them to you for a profit. As long as they don't LIE, it is perfectly legal.

I see nothing illegal. It's a private business. It gets to set its own prices. Of course, no one has seen any of Hannaford's contracts, and that might change things.

your state's department that deals with food safety may have an issue with this, but Hannaford likely does not.

When you eat out, where does the food come from.? Businesses buy it , cook it and double the price.
Anyone can resale,

Buy low, sell high. It's the American way. Anyone can buy stuff at the store and then resell it.
They could be buying from the same wholesale company that the grocery store uses. But for fresh produce it might be cheaper for them to buy at the store.
I used to work at a pizza place, and things we don't use a lot (like pineapple), we would buy at the grocery store.

How do you know if corporate does not have one. How do you know that it might be must sell x amount to be able to. I am most certain that they have something.
