The demerger of METRO GROUP - why now?
Focus on our customers and our core competencies
A pure play business model allows us to become faster, more focused and more agile so we can deliver greater value to our customers and all our stakeholders.
What we already achieved
We are already a leading player in wholesale and food service with a strong portfolio of companies. The demerger will help strengthen our market lead, accelerating organic growth and allowing for improved acquisition-based growth. In our B2B business, we have posted thirteen consecutive quarters of like-for-like growth and have seen consistent operational and financial improvement over the last few years.
Continuing our success story
A focussed business model is the catalyst to us fulfilling our financial targets; it will allow each of our business units to develop and implement their individual value creation plans. This will put us in a prime position to continue our development in new and existing markets.
METRO is a leading international wholesale and food specialist business group and dedicated food specialist with a wholesale customer base in 35 countries.
The food sector has great potential for all our business customers and we’re committed to doing everything we can to fuel their ambition and champion their success.
152,000 food associates and a strong management team will continue our success story in wholesale.
