Supporting Surrounding Communities

By tradition and out of a sense of mission, at the Jerónimo Martins Group we are deeply involved with the communities in which we are present.

We endeavour to have a positive impact on them, through the products we provide, the employment we generate and the support we grant to causes and institutions that help the more vulnerable groups in society, such as children, young people and the elderly.

The most significant support provided by the Group, either directly or indirectly, is generally in the form of donations in foodstuffs, in order to contribute towards the fight against hunger and malnutrition because, as the Food Distribution leader in the countries where we operate, we believe this to be our responsibility.


We support communities through donations and by participating in food collection initiatives.

Social Initiatives

We join social initiatives with a potential for change, focusing on children, young people and the elderly.

Internal campaigns

We believe in engaging our employees in programes for the community.

Impact Measurement

Through the sharing of good monitoring practices and a structured model to assess the impacts on the surrounding communities in the short and medium term, we aim to be an agent of social change. Every year we monitor the support granted using the criteria outlined by the London Benchmarking Group.

Independent Verification

The 2018 data referring to the infrastructure investments and services supported, local community engagement and impact’s measurement of the support granted to our surrounding communities was verified by an external and independent entity in the context of the Group’s 2018 Annual Report.
