"Ocado is the only dedicated online supermarket in the UK and the largest dedicated online supermarket by turnover in the world." [1]

In April 2000, the online food retailer Ocado was launched. John Lewis Partnership came on board as a principal supplier and part owner in October 2000. The Ocado service is only available in certain areas of Britain. Ocado uses a central warehouse to service their deliveries. In November 2008, the John Lewis Partnership transferred its shareholding, then 29%, into its staff pension fund. It also agreed a five-year supply deal with the business, replacing its previous one year rolling deal. This deal was amended in 2010 to a ten-year agreement to supply products to Ocado. In February 2011, John Lewis Pension trust divested itself of its Ocado shares. wiki
