Activities of the Carrefour Foundation

The main mission of the Carrefour Foundation (set up in 2000) is fighting social exclusion and providing help during natural disasters. The Carrefour Foundation prevents social inequalities which are directly or indirectly related to nutrition. The Foundation organizes and conducts food collects for people in greatest need as part of its mission for fighting against everyday exclusion. The Foundation also contributes to the development of farming and supports gastronomy-related jobs.

It also carries out many food programs which promote a healthy and balanced diet. The Carrefour Foundation provides humanitarian help, mostly through logistic support, to those most in need. The Foundation offers associations the possibility to benefit from the know-how of the Carrefour Group in order to deliver the needed products as fast as possible to damaged areas from natural disasters.

The Carrefour Foundation helped and still supports Polish organizations. From the beginning of its activities, the Foundation has supported projects conducted by organizations in Poland.

Until August 2018, the Carrefour Foundation allocated
3 543 268
euros to grant beneficiaries.

Local involvement

Local involvement

We engage ourselves in many local actions related to ecology and promoting sports and a healthy lifestyle. Our stores support local NGOs, schools, children’s homes and cooperate with public benefit organizations.

Carrefour cares about good neighborhood relationships. Every year, Carrefour supermarkets organize a “Neighbor Day” with the aim to make everyday shopping experiences even more pleasant and to enable customers to spend a nice time close to their home.

Carrefour seeks to actively engage itself in the everyday life of local communities for its stores to become daily meeting places.

It is worth mentioning that Carrefour respects local customers’ habits and analyzes them on a regular basis. Our chain offers a wide range of products from local suppliers, and customers at Carrefour have a permanent access to fresh seasonal products, e.g. vegetables and fruits. Such actions have a positive impact on the product offer of the chain, support the economic growth of regions in which Carrefour operates, and promotes the development of local communities.

Senior and Large Family Cards

Senior and Large Family Cards

As part of our efforts to support people in need, we launched the Senior Card, which gives shopping discounts for people over 60. We are also the first big retail chain to have joined the Large Family program.
