Foodie.fm online groceries expands to the Baltics:
Digital Foodie partners with Prisma Peremarket and open a Collect & Go service in Estonia

HELSINKI – Digital Foodie, the creator of the award winning Foodie.fm platform, and Prisma Peremarket, a retail chain operating in Estonia, have established a co-operation and open a Collect & Go service in Estonia.

Prisma Peremarket deploys Foodie Product Suite that includes consumer facing online services, in-store picking and quality tools. The core of the suite is the multichannel storefront built around Foodie’s behavioural recommendation engine. For consumers Foodie offers personalised product and food recommendations that are seamlessly linked to shopping online. The tablet based in-store tools cover everything needed to run the online operations from efficient picking to Collect & Go fulfillment.

“Retail industry is undergoing a major transformation from brick and mortar to online. Consumers demand transparency and convenient services to fit their individual needs. We have more than doubled S Group’s online sales in Finland in just 12 months. With the new Collect & Go service in Estonia Peremarket can address the evolving consumer demands, offer better customer service and increase sales,” explains Kalle Koutajoki, CEO of Digital Foodie.

“The pace of which consumers adapt new technologies is amazing. We were impressed by Foodie’s technology and the level of service they have been able to provide in other markets in such a short period of time. Our aim is to make the shopping experience in Prisma as convenient as possible, be that offline or online. Foodie is a perfect partner for us,“ says Janne Lihavainen, CEO of Prisma Peremarket.

The new Collect & Go service offered by Prisma will first be available for ordering online from Prisma Express convenience store. Customers can place orders online, select desired pickup slot and orders are ready to be collected from 10-20. The service is provided free of charge. In the second phase, the service will be expanded to cover larger assortment and more stores in Estonia.
