Food store brands: Intermarché battles to make sure “better eating is accessible to all” and Netto’s fight towards “pleasurable discount”

At Group level (Belgium, France, Poland and Portugal) Intermarché’s and Netto’s turnover has reached 27.5 billion euros, fuel not included (37.2 billion euros including fuel).

In France the year-to-year market share at the end of December (for consumer goods and self-service fresh products) of both food stores rose to 15% (by 0.2 points) with a turnover of 24.6 billion euros not including fuel (33.4 billion euros including fuel).

In France, Intermarché’s turnover increase by 1.9% in 2019 (23.5 billion euros, fuel not included and 32 billion euros including fuel) highlights the way the “Producer & Retailer” model is welcomed by consumers who are more and more benefiting from its concrete advantages. Netto has kept making progress in France in 2019, with a turnover of 1.12 billion euros, fuel not included, representing an increase by 1.5% (1.3% fuel included).

Agromousquetaires: constant innovation to help French consumers have a better diet

For the second consecutive year, Agromousquetaires has ranked 4th amongst food players in France (RIA ranking), with a turnover of 4.1 billion euros in 2019, representing a 2.4% increase compared to 2018. With its ten business lines and 62 production units, all of which are located in France, Agromousquetaires is a crucial tool that allows the Mousquetaires to support the French farming sector.

In 2019, our store brands have kept growing steadily, and we have made progress in strengthening our business lines: the integration of Bricorama in our “Household Equipment” cluster is a good illustration of this. We continue the deep transformation of our Group in order to adapt to the changes in retail and consumption, which shows the evolution of our “Mobility” cluster. With our “Producers & Retailers” model we have also opted for approaches that make no compromises regarding environmental and social challenges, such as the launching of Franco-Score. We have kept investing in the modernisation of our joint tools: our plants, our integrated logistics network and our IT systems. This year of our fiftieth anniversary, 200 entrepreneurs joined us, trustful in the strength of our exclusive model and our wide perspectives.

Chairman of Groupement Les Mousquetaires,

Household Equipment store brands: the model of the future for DIY independent players.

In Europe, the 3 household equipment brands of the Mousquetaires represented a turnover of 3.59 billion euros.

At international level, Bricomarché recorded very significant turnover increases: +8.6% in Portugal and +10.7% in Poland.

In France in 2019, Bricomarché, Bricorama and Brico Cash were the first convenience network of independent retailers. The three store brands altogether recorded a turnover of 2.87 billion euros and increased by 2.60% at comparable selling areas, overperforming for the third consecutive year the 1.80% market increase at comparable selling areas (source: Unibal/FMB). This shows the attractiveness of the stores for the consumers and the model relevance that has been adopted by almost 100 new entrepreneurs since the integration of Bricorama.

Mobility store brands: a portfolio of complementary brands that is rapidly developing

The Mousquetaires’ brand portfolio is now made of 4 complementary specialist brands: Roady car centres, Rapid Pare-Brise window repair centres, American Car Wash centres, and for several months now, Izyscoot, the expert in two-wheeled and urban vehicles.

With 146 car centres in Europe, 113 of which are located in France, Roady reached in 2019 a turnover of 193 million euros, fuel not included (240 million euros including fuel), representing an increase by +2.7%.

The third Izyscoot maintenance centre opened at the end of 2019.

The objective is to keep deploying these brands throughout the country and apply a very high level of quality as regards the customer experience in these centres.
