Where food is more than just a business

A passion for the food business is something we share every day with four million consumers who visit the more than 3,300 stores we have in Portugal, Poland and Colombia.

Food Distribution

Food distribution is our core business and represents over 95% of our consolidated sales. In Portugal, we are leaders in the Supermarket segment through the Pingo Doce chain and in the Cash & Carry segment with Recheio. In Poland, Biedronka is the biggest Food Distribution chain in the country, with over 2,700 stores.

Our presence in Colombia is more recent, as we entered that market in 2013 with the Ara neighbourhood stores and are now the sales leader in the Coffee Growing Region. More recently, we entered the Bogotá region, which has 14 million inhabitants, representing 40% of the country’s GDP.

In 2014, a new area was launched – Agro-food – which aims to support the Food Distribution area in Portugal, ensuring that our banners have direct access to supply sources of strategic products, such as meat, fish and dairy products.
