What if we could revolutionise the way people shop forever, by giving them a uniquely innovative and greener alternative to traditional grocery shopping?
At the beginning of the year 2000, that ‘What if?’ became ‘Let’s do it’, when Tim Steiner, Jason Gissing and Jonathan Faiman founded Ocado. It’s a huge understatement to say that a lot’s happened since then. Ocado has grown from three people in a single-roomed office in London, into a business with roughly 12,600 employees serving hundreds of thousands of customers around the UK. Ocado Technology makes up roughly 1,000 of those employees, with development offices across Europe.
Today, Ocado is the world’s largest online-only grocery retailer, reaching over 70% of British households, shipping over 200,000 orders per week, and growing fast. But that’s not all. We’re using the technology that makes all this possible to put other retailers around the world online.
