Profitero customer Ocado has revealed that it expects to sign a significant number of joint ventures with retailers outside of the UK, mirroring the deal the online grocer announced earlier this year with Morrisons. Ocado’s Low Price Promise, powered by Profitero pricing data, has resulted in Ocado attracting more customers than ever before and growing sales.

Speaking to Reuters at The World Retail Congress earlier this month, Ocado CEO Tim Steiner said he had been bombarded with calls from retailers asking how to break into online grocery, from companies in Europe, The Americas and Australasia.

“We do expect to do more Morrison-esque transactions to monetise our technology. We could do one, then three, then nine”, Steiner said, noting that once Amazon had mastered the technology, it quickly signed up an almost endless procession of suppliers to its marketplace.”

Ocado.com is the only dedicated online supermarket in the UK and the largest dedicated online supermarket by turnover in the world. Ocado’s Low Price Promise, powered by Profitero pricing data, has resulted in Ocado attracting more customers than ever before and growing sales. Read the Ocado Customer Success story here.
