Word from the Chairman
You can count on Colruyt Group
In the 2020/21 financial year, the global pandemic had an unprecedented impact on our group as well. Faced with this, we showed incredible flexibility, creativity and solidarity and we managed to continue to fulfil our social role: maintain the food supply, with as our utmost priority the safety of employees and customers.
In this difficult year, we realised a revenue of over EUR 9,9 billion. Colruyt remained true to its lowest prices promise, and as a group we continued to invest in our stores and distribution centres, in e-commerce and innovation and sustainability projects. Through participations and acquisitions, we realised our long-term strategy to offer our customers relevant solutions in all phases of their lives.
Sustainable entrepreneurship remained the common thread running through all our activities. For example, we strengthened our partnerships with Belgian producers and launched a first: the Eco-Score, to help consumers make more sustainable choices. We also continued to invest heavily in the production and distribution of renewable energy.
In short, we kept working together and assumed our social responsibility. I want to express my sincerest thanks for this, once more, dear colleague, customer, supplier or partner. You can all continue to count on Colruyt Group.
