Another busy quarter for the robots at Ocado warehouses…
The UK online supermarket says revenue at its retail arm jumped 52% as shoppers stuck at home opted to get their food delivered.
That took third-quarter revenue to about 756 million dollars.
The growth follows an over-40% surge in the previous quarter.
Online food shopping has more than doubled its share of the UK market since the global health crisis began.
14% of all groceries are now delivered, and Ocado reckons that could hit 30% over the next few years.
The coming quarter will mark a key test for the firm though.
From the first of September it has dropped long-time partner Waitrose.
Instead it will offer products from rival chain Marks & Spencer.
Ocado says customers have responded positively to the switch, with demand for the new range driving an increase in the number of products in customer baskets.
