Presentation of the Group

 

The Carrefour Group: one of the world’s leading retailers

The Carrefour Group is the leading retailer in Europe and the second-largest retailer in the world, employing nearly 365,000 people. With more than 10,100 stores  in 34 countries, it generated revenues of €100.2 billion under banners in 2013. As a multi-local, multi-format, and multi-channel retailer, Carrefour is a partner for daily life. Every day, it welcomes more than 10 million customers around the world, offering them a wide range of products and services at fair prices.


An international retailer

A pioneer in countries such as Brazil in 1975 and China in 1995, the Group now operates on three major markets: Europe, Latin America and Asia.
With a presence in more than 30 countries, it generates more than 55% of its sales outside France.


A force in local economic development

Everywhere it operates, the Carrefour Group demonstrates its commitment to local economic growth. Because retail involves people, it always gives priority to recruiting people who live locally, and to training its managers and staff on site.

Very often, the Carrefour Group is the premier private employer in the countries in which it operates. This is obviously the case in France – where the group was founded – but it also holds true in countries such as Brazil, Argentina and Italy. At the same time, the Group gives priority to local supply chains. So 75% of all its food products come from local suppliers in the countries in which it operates.
