Waitrose has signed an exclusive partnership with Hiku to launch the scanning device in Britain.

According to Waitrose, customers will want to use the Hiku scanner at home with its ability to scans barcodes four times faster than using an app on a mobile device.
Waitrose staff will carry out trials using the innovative device with customer trials to take place at home early next year.
