At Picnic, we’re designing an affordable, hassle-free grocery service for the many. We believe everyone should be able to enjoy the benefits of a truly online supermarket, so that people spend less time shopping for bulky groceries and more time enjoying life.
To offer this user-friendly proposition we are revolutionizing the way we prepare and deliver orders for our customers, and our data driven and hyper efficient supply chain enables us to cut down on food waste and substantially reduce energy usage.
