Ocado extends partnership with Groupe Casino

Ocado has extended its partnership with French retailer Groupe Casino, following a Memorandum of Understanding announced in February.

The extension includes the creation of a joint venture to provide logistics services to Ocado-powered customer fulfilment centres in France, which will be available to all grocery retailers.

It also includes a partnership for Ocado Group to integrate Octopia’s marketplace platform into the Ocado Smart Platform (OSP) and will allow OSP partners around the world to launch their own marketplace offering.

Groupe Casino will also use Ocado’s in-store fulfilment technology across its Monoprix stores.

Ocado agreed its first deal with Groupe Casino in 2017, which has more than 11,500 stores worldwide across France and Latin America.

“This is a great milestone for our relationship with Groupe Casino as we extend the partnership in a number of exciting directions,” Ocado Solutions chief executive Luke Jensen said.

“Our partnership demonstrates what can be achieved when a major retailer introduces a world-class quality of service online, enabled by unique efficiencies, to French consumers.

“I’m excited that Ocado Group’s cutting-edge technologies are now available to all grocery retailers in France, with the new joint venture leveraging our combined expertise to provide key logistics services for future CFCs.”
