Retailer Tesco is scooping up two thirds of all online grocery orders in the UK, research has revealed.
The study of online grocery sales data by analyst comScore Networks found that Tesco’s online service is handling 30,000 orders a day with an annual value of £2.5m – 66% of all UK internet grocery orders.
The research, drawn from spending data from two million people over the first seven months of 2006 found that Tesco’s closest online rival was Asda, with 16% of all orders, followed by Sainsbury's on 14%.
Sainsbury’s customers spent most online, with an average bill of £90, compared with £80 for Tesco and Asda.
