Home delivery from Norway's largest grocery store

Oda is a company on the move. We built Norway’s leading online grocery store and now we want to share what we’ve created with the world! Delivering a huge range of high-quality, affordable groceries and fresh produce to millions of doorsteps is a complex process, but we believe we’ve cracked the code. Using data-driven methodology, with a focus on sustainability all the way along the chain, we are building the most efficient retail system in the world. With solid backing from some of the biggest international investors in the world, we’re proud to be one of the fastest growing companies in Europe.

Our vision is to create a society where people have more space for life, and we will achieve this by building the worlds most effective retail system. Through smart work, passionate customer focus and our own technology we make a difference in the lives of thousands of customers, and change society for the better through a completely re-imagined value chain for grocery shopping. Our Norwegian customers save more than 60 hours a year, time we believe can be better spent than going to the store. Our effective value chain and logistics save society tonnes of food waste each year and each additional vehicle on the road through our distribution network replace almost 13,000 individual trips by car to the grocery store each year.
