Swedish Online Supermarket Launches In The UK Offering Savings On Brands Of Up To 60%

Motatos, an online grocer that offers shoppers discounted prices on surplus inventory from wholesalers and distributors, launched in the UK this week.

The business was founded in Sweden in 2014, but now operates stores in Denmark, Finland, and Germany, and has proved popular with cash-strapped consumers.

Motatos sells food that would otherwise have been thrown away due to modifications in packaging, seasonal changes, or short best before dates. It focuses on ambient goods such as soft drinks, snacks, household goods, pet food and personal care products.

It sells lines from leading brands such as Cadbury, Kellogg’s, Heinz, Typhoo, Walkers, Ariel, and Dove, with claims of savings of up to 60% against the “normal retail price”.

Motatos founder Karl Andersson said: “We’re really excited to be launching in the UK at this stage in our development. There’s so much opportunity here for consumers to be able to help reduce waste whilst also reducing their weekly spend, meaning they don’t have to choose between price and being environmentally conscious.”

Christabel Biella, Motatos UK country manager, added: “The cost of living crisis is affecting all sectors, and UK shoppers are looking for ways to cut down their monthly spend without compromising on all the brands that they love.

“With prices surging, Motatos is hoping to make a real difference to consumers by offering savvy savings, allowing them to be sustainability-minded and reduce waste. It’s a win-win.”
The site has a minimum order value of £20. Deliveries are free for orders over £40, with a £2.99 charge for those below that level.
