Ocado enjoys sales growth

Ocado has claimed strong growth in several areas in its interim management statement for the 12 weeks to 11 August.

Gross sales for the grocery delivery company, which is partnered with Waitrose and Morrisons, have risen by 16.4% on the previous year to £189.2m, while the average number of orders per week has increased by 15.3% to 138,889.

The average order size has also seen a slight increase of 1% to £113.54, despite some supermarkets reporting a reduction in the average spend.

Ocado CEO Tim Steiner said he was encouraged by the continuing momentum in sales growth. “We remain focused on improving the proposition to customers to make it easier for consumers to shop at Ocado, from an ever-wider range, and at competitive prices. This should support further growth as the demand for online grocery chopping continues,” he added.
