Food transition

Carrefour is willing to ensure its clients the highest shopping comfort and thus, aims to become the world leader of food transition. The company, which took notice of the rising expectations and knowledge of clients concerning healthy nutrition and a balanced diet, strives to guarantee for consumers a permanent access to food products of the highest quality at affordable prices.

Strategy of the Food Transition
 

Food transition is one of the strategic goals of Carrefour. The idea is to help consumers change their eating habits through education, and by ensuring them a wide access to information about the products sold in stores.

Carrefour’s ambition is to become the world leader of food transition for all, by offering clients – every day and everywhere- healthy food products of the highest quality at reasonable price.

The company strives to guarantee for its clients a permanent access to fresh fruits and vegetables from trustworthy and local suppliers, as well as to certified bio products at affordable price. Carrefour wants to democratize healthy and good quality food for all. This approach is an important element of the “Carrefour 2022” strategy, which has been announced by Carrefour Group in January 2018.


"We all play a significant role in the food transition. This is why we reinforce our cooperation with our employees, startups, associations and non-governmental organizations and we help Polish farmers, proposing support for the development of the ecological agriculture. Thanks to this, we can make the food transition really happen, not only on Carrefour shelves, but also on the plates of all Polish people."

Democratization of BIO food

One of the main challenges that Carrefour will have to face in Poland as part of the food transition - is the democratization of BIO products. Carrefour strives to guarantee for its clients access to a large offer of bio products at affordable price. Currently, the brand's offer includes about 70 products, whose ecological origin is confirmed by the EU certificate and - additionally - the Agriculture Biologique certificate granted by the French Ministry of Agriculture. The assortment of stores will include products from Poland and abroad. To promote the development of organic farming in Poland, Carrefour provides long-term support from the Carrefour Foundation for farmers interested in the transformation to ecological farming.
