Carrefour is standing alongside French fishermen, supporting them during the current health crisis


During the current COVID-19 pandemic and in line with Alexandre Bompard’s desire to help and support SMEs, Carrefour is taking action to support the French fishing industry. As prices are collapsing, Carrefour is committing to purchasing certain volumes at certain prices, so that the fishing industry can continue to function properly, and fishermen can be guaranteed pre-pandemic prices.

Carrefour is making volume and price commitments, standing alongside the seafood industry
The Carrefour group is standing alongside several stakeholders in the seafood industry, including the Océalliance group, France's leading seafood intermediary. It is supporting French fishing by guaranteeing volumes and purchase prices for around ten major species, including mackerel, sardines, ling and whiting. Since the fishing industry is highly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic (around half of its products are normally destined for the catering sector), Carrefour wants to provide its support and raise the visibility of a sector that is essential to France's agri-food industry.

Fish counters remain open and well-stocked
To continue providing its customers with high-quality products, the Carrefour group has pledged to keep its traditional counters open for as long as it can. Those stores which are forced to close their counters will package their merchandise and sell it in the self-service section.
