Who are we?

Over half a century Colruyt Group has grown from a family firm into a family of companies with nearly 30.000 employees. For a long time, we were known mainly for the Colruyt discount store, but in recent decades we have greatly diversified our retail activities. Now, we also operate as a wholesaler, produce renewable energy and own stakes in clothing chains and offshore wind farms. No matter how different, with every new initiative we want to provide meaningful added value. In line with the changing spirit of the times and the needs of consumers, at all stages of their lives.

9 common values

All Colruyt Group businesses share a common identity and culture. This is summed up in our mission and inspired by our nine historic values: respect, togetherness, simplicity, readiness to serve, faith, hope, space, courage and strength. We aim for sustainable economic growth along with a strong commitment to human and social development. In the long term too.

Our mission

Sustainable entrepreneurship in our DNA

For decades, sustainability has run through all of our activities as a common thread. Our ambitions are far-reaching. We want to be a reference point for sustainable entrepreneurship in Belgium. We put many people and resources into this. We are proud of what we have achieved over the years, while realising that sustainable entrepreneurship never ends. So, day after day, we do our best to make a meaningful difference together. Step by step.
