There's a right time for everything.

A time to sow, another to reap.
A time to roll up our sleeves, another to celebrate the work done.
A time to run, and another to stop and enjoy the path taken.
This year was time-intensive.
And at the end of the day, when we acknowledge the fruits of time, we treasure it dearly.

Every hour, the same passion: food

From the source to the table of the five million consumers who visit our stores every day, we are committed to bringing the freshest food.
