Our purpose ?
We want to change the lives of 8 billion people between now and 2025
At Auchan Retail, we are certain that a world that consumes more efficiently has a better chance of being more efficient. As a result of our close involvement in daily life, we can see that the world is changing, as are consumers’ needs. We see how the planet is suffering, and the extent to which our customers, partners and employees expect practices to change. They are counting on Auchan Retail, on us, to support them. That is why we are working hard to change the lives of the planet’s 8 billion inhabitants between now and 2025, by setting the standards for next-generation retailing, which is engaged and which lays down key benchmarks. A business that improves everyone’s daily lives and allows everyone to life together more effectively.
Our business ?
We are a next-generation retailer
We are responsible campaigners for good, healthy and local products. We set an example through the quality of our exclusive products, our selected offerings, our discount prices and the excellence of our customer experience. Our increasingly customised innovations and services simplify everyday shopping and change the lives of our growing numbers of customers around the world. People, well-being and a passion for service are at the centre of everything we do. That’s how Auchan changes everyone’s lives: for our customers at the heart of our project and for our employees at work in this human adventure.
This is key to a working relationship that is effective, considerate and full of meaning, for all. In a constantly changing world, confidence drives us to forge deep and lasting relationships, every day.
Working to the highest standards and cultivating a similar thinking in others. Being passionate about our products, services and relationships. Excellence guides us: we do no simply strive to do better, we want to give each and everyone the best there is.
Openness is a state of mind that makes all the difference and makes change possible. Curiosity, enthusiasm, an ability to challenge oneself to invent retailing of the future, that will change the lives of the 8 billion inhabitants of this planet.
For 55 years, we have been creating a history of everyday life, fuelled by our passion for service, products and customer satisfaction and we are inventing next-generation retailing the world over.
