IGA is the top independent retail grocery banner in the Sobeys Inc. family, Canada’s second largest national grocery chain. IGA is also a North American pioneer and leader in online grocery through continuous innovation, with new unified commerce experiences and a cloud-based Mobile Pick & Pack app for optimized in-store order fulfillment.

Sobeys partnered with Orckestra to build a unified commerce platform for their commerce foundation on the Microsoft Azure cloud that could at once modernize IGA’s ecommerce offering in multiple languages, as well as extend across other banners, including Thrifty Foods

Managing their vast and varied product offering in a single source, they now easily target assortments and promotions down to the store level, plus a single view of the customer, orders and marketing across their ecommerce site and mobile app offers exceptional shopping and customer service online, by phone and in-store.
