Retail sales at the online grocery retailer, Ocado, jumped 35% year on year to £2.2bn in the year to November 29 2020, as demand for online groceries jumped during the pandemic, and the retailer invested substantially into its capacity and technology. The company opened its first international customer fulfilment centres during 2020 – in Paris in April, followed by another in Toronto in May. Ocado also opened an Ocado Zoom ‘micro site’ in west London with more sites planned in the area to support the group’s growth ambitions.
Chief executive Tim Steiner said: “The rapid acceleration of many pre-existing trends in business and society has been a feature of the Covid-19 crisis and the dramatic channel shift in grocery is a clear example of this. The landscape for food retailing is changing, for good. As we look ahead to a post-vaccine world and a return to a new normality, Ocado Group is very well placed to enable our grocery partners worldwide to bring the best customer experience to market, responsibly, with high levels of hygiene and superior, sustainable and proven economics”.
