Ocado Group Half Year Results
Ocado Group CEO, Tim Steiner and CFO of Ocado Group, Tim Steiner talk about the latest Half Year Results.
Tim, thank you for the opportunity.
Tim, it’s good to be with you.
I think the year has largely been a success for Ocado Group. We have just released the half year review of our sales so far. And in that we have had three quarters of new store openings, new revenue, about $800 million of new revenue, including about $1 billion of new brand new stores. So that’s pretty impressive.
We’re ahead of our expectations quite significantly, quite significantly given the fact that we have had very limited store openings, a very slow start to the year, with a very small number of store openings and a very small amount of revenue. Our first year, we opened about 2,000 stores, about 2 million dollars in revenue. So we’re ahead of that on our sales, but we have to see how this quarter unfolds in a number of years.
For us, we are focused on a lot of new, unique products. So we’re very excited about some of the new products we have introduced, the new products we’re going to introduce in the next couple of months. So that is something that is going to drive the next couple of quarters, and we’re very pleased with that.
And for us, there’s a pretty big focus on the category of food. We have about a $1. 2 billion in annual sales of our food business, and we are focusing on the food category. We have a very broad customer base and we have very strong customer loyalty. So very strong customer loyalty is key to business growth. And we want to keep that going and have that very strong customer loyalty and that brand loyalty.
We also had a decent performance on the digital side.

Robotics at Ocado
In the context of its mission to promote e-commerce, Ocado has developed a prototype robot to assist shoppers during checkout using a touch screen interface. The robot, called “Ocado+,” is a four-armed robot similar to a robot that is used in the retail environment.
The robot is able to interact with the customer shopping in the checkout environment by touching a touchpad. In the case of a customer looking at an item on the screen, Ocado displays a selection of possible alternatives to the customer and then selects the option that the customer would like to purchase.
The robot is able to display images on the touchpad and select options by touching the touchpad. The touchpad can also be used to simulate the selection and display of images. The robot is compatible with touchscreens of a variety of mobile device brands.
This work is part of a larger research and development project of Ocado and has been accepted as a project description on the Ocado website, for this article.
The Ocado robot can be easily controlled and has the ability to interact with the environment. It has four arms, which are in fact four different arms.
The robot has sensors for sensing the presence of a human in the environment and for sensing the presence of an item in the environment, and a microphone to listen for the sound that a customer makes when placing an item on the robot’s arm. The robot’s arm is connected to the power source via two cables and four motors. By this arrangement, the robot can be controlled by a remote control.
The robot can also be used for surveillance purposes, where it can be used as a surveillance cameras for a grocery store or department store.
The robot has two different modes for interaction. In the first mode, it can be used to interact with the customer by touching the touchpad. In this mode, the robot can be used to simulate what a customer would do while placing an item on the object it holds in its arm. In this mode, the robot has an arm with the item in the center, which is to be placed on the object.
