Key Highlights

Surprisingly, Etablissementen Franz Colruyt NV was the strongest performer of the top 10 hypermarkets, supermarkets and discounters in Europe, due to its strong performance in operational efficiency parameters.

As expected, Carrefour was the top performer under the scale and growth pillar. It also performed strongly under the financial performance pillar. However, its performance in operational efficiency was very weaker than the channel average.

Kesko’s performance was weaker than the channel average in the peer group. It is mainly due to its weaker performance in scale and growth pillar and operational efficiency pillar.
