Motatos exits the UK after one year

Motatos branded box of groceries

Online discount grocer Motatos has closed its UK store with immediate effect after launching in the country just over a year ago.

The retailer sold ambient food and fast-moving consumer goods that would otherwise have gone to waste due to being out of season, changed packaging or having a short shelf life.

The Swedish discounter launched in the UK in June 2022 and offered shoppers bargains on household brands such as Heinz, Cadbury and Kellogg’s, with savings of up to 60% compared with other grocers.
