Best UK eCommerce Site of the Year
This past year, Adobe’s UK team has been working on 2 key areas: “Personalisation/Culturalisation” and “Solving Customer Problems”.
As Adobe enters its next stage of growth, one major lever we are working on is “Personalisation and Culturalisation” as we understand that although the UK is an English-speaking market, the UK does not equal the US. Therefore, the team have been working on tonality, imagery and localised approaches to both campaigns and promo pricing merchandising messaging across our website to make it more “British”.
Our second key theme is “Solving Customer Problems”. Our research and insights indicate that our customers were getting lost across our website and were getting confused with our offerings, products and plans. This built the case to create quizzes and recommendation tools within our website to ease the customer’s journey.
Ultimately, there is no blueprint for Personalisation/Culturalisation and there are still many problems for us to solve, however the UK team are in the midst of our growth project and aim to continue iterating and making our website experiences best-in-class for our customers.

Since 2016, Iceland.co.uk has been the UK’s fastest-growing online grocer, outpacing its biggest rivals, and the Online team’s dedication to its customers over the past 6 years have resulted in record-breaking growth.
During the COVID-19 pandemic the Iceland Online team increased delivery slots the fastest and by greatest volume in the industry, developed new technology to service its vulnerable customers and worked with central government and the NHS to prioritise millions of people across the country. This resulted in a 375% increase in delivery capacity, giving Iceland the ability to deliver over 1 million orders per week. In their stores, Iceland was the first grocer in the UK to offer dedicated priority shopping hours for elderly, vulnerable and NHS frontline workers.
Continuing into 2021 & 2022, Iceland continued to lead the way and implement new initiatives, such as the Fresh or Free Guarantee initiative, a new loyalty app and a number of website improvements. All of these culminated in Iceland being voted by Which? customers as the UK’s Favourite Online Supermarket in 2022, and provide a solid bedrock for future online growth.
