Ocado hints at upcoming release of new ‘game-changing technology’

Ocado has released a teaser, revealing it will unveil “the next leap of game-changing technology and innovation” later this month.

“We have a long tradition of solving some of the toughest technology challenges of our age – join us and be among the first to see the next leap in innovation,” the retailer said.

The technology will be announced during a virtual product launch to be held on 26 January.

The company, which is well-known for its warehouses integrated with AI and robotics, has not disclosed any further information about the mystery technology.

Many have speculated the announcement could be initiatives such as delivery by drove, “virtual shopping” or the launch of Ocado’s own non-fungible token (NFT) which could enable customers to own goods without receiving the physical products.

The news comes as parents and students at Yerbury Primary School are currently protesting against Ocado’s plans to build a depot behind the school playground, due to concerns that the 24/7 centre will increase pollution and noise.

The movement is called NOcado and a decision surrounding the depot is expected to be announced on 14 January.
