Ocado extends partnership with Groupe Casino
Online grocer Ocado is to extend its partnership with the Groupe Casino supermarket chain in France.
Through the extension, a new exclusive joint venture will be created to provide logistics services to OSP-powered customer fulfilment centres in France, which will be available to all grocery retailers.
In a statement, Ocado said the joint venture will draw on the combined strengths of both businesses to provide services such as project management for CFC construction and set-up, as well as the recruitment and operations management of personnel.
The extension will also see Groupe Casino deploy Ocado’s in-store fulfilment solution across its Monoprix store estate.
The move follows the success of the companies’ partnership and expanding operations in Ile-de-France.
Tim Steiner, chief executive of Ocado Group, said: “The online grocery channel in France has reached an inflection point, with a huge rise in demand for compelling, affordable and efficient grocery ecommerce propositions. Our growing partnership and live operations in Ile-de-France have set the highest bar for the experience French consumers can expect in online grocery.”
