Food Distribution

Food distribution is our core business and represents more than 98% 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, almost 3,400 stores.

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

In 2014, a new area was launched – Agribusiness – 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.
