Ocado entered a partnership with Kroger - the largest grocery chain in the USA* - in May 2018.

Kroger has exclusive** use of Ocado’s end-to-end technology and automation solutions in the US, and will order 20 CFCs over the first three years of the agreement.

With a rapid roll-out, we will work closely together to expand Kroger’s reach into the burgeoning online grocery market in the US, helping to provide its customers with the most seamless user experience across different ways of shopping.

Rodney McMullen, Kroger President and CEO, said: “We see Ocado as an innovative, exciting, and transformative partnership […] which will speed up our efforts to redefine the food and grocery customer experience – creating value for customers and shareholders alike.”
