Ocado announces second Sobeys CFC

Ocado Solutions and Sobeys have inked a deal to build a second Customer Fulfilment Centre (CFC) in Pointe-Claire, Montreal. 

This adds to the centre currently under construction in Vaughan, Ontario, which is focused on the Greater Toronto area. Ocado entered an exclusive partnership with Sobeys in 2018 involving its Smart Platform. The latest announcement builds on that agreement and will enable Sobeys to serve e-commerce customers across Ottawa and major cities in the Province of Quebec.

Today, we also announced the new brand and name for our e-commerce solution. Powered by Ocado’s world-leading technology, Voilà by Sobeys will launch in Toronto beginning in Spring 2020 and Voilà par IGA will launch in Montreal serving Quebec and the Ottawa area in 2021.”
