Finland’s Digital Foodie, creator of grocery shopping platform Foodie.fm, is partnering with The Southern Co-operative (TSC) in the UK to trial a Click & Collect service.
TSC is an independent food retail co-operative trading across the south of England. It is now testing a Click & Collect service based on a new online self-service platform called Foodie Local that is piloting in the UK at the present. The Foodie Local platform includes information on more than 100,000 products sold in the UK and is available as a web service optimised for both large and mobile screen sizes.
The core of the service is a storefront built on Foodie's behavioural recommendation engine. Foodie offers shoppers personalised product and food recommendations that are seamlessly linked to shopping online. Trials of the service have focused on customer satisfaction, operational efficiency and quality.
