BUCHAREST (Romania), November 18 (SeeNews) - Czech-based Rohlik Group said on Thursday it will launch its online grocery delivery services under the new Sezamo brand in Romania in the first half of 2022.

Operations are being launched after market analyses showed an increase in customer demand for online grocery delivery services, Rohlik said in a press release.

Rohlik will also launch its online grocery delivery services in Italy and Spain next year.

From the spring onwards, close to 2.5 million households in Milan and Bucharest will have access to the Rohlik Group customer experience for the first time, with Italy to be its second-largest market after Germany, the company added.

A 10,000 sq m warehouse in CTPark Bucharest North will be customised to meet all the needs of Rohlík's vendors and customers, including storage spaces with controlled temperature for fresh fruit and vegetables, which will be delivered directly to consumers from local as well as international producers.

Founded in 2014 in the Czech Republic, Rohlik Group operates in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Austria and Germany under various local brands. Rohlik turnover exceeded 300 million euro ($340 million) in 2020.
