Ahold Delhaize is one of the world's largest food retail groups, formed in 2016 with the merger of Ahold and Delhaize. The group serves 54 million customers on a weekly basis through its major operation hubs of Europe, the US and Indonesia, operating 7,000 grocery stores across the three regions. Its main business touches distribution and retail operations, including both online and retail shops, with the company focussing recent efforts on diversifying further into eCommerce activities. In its home country the Netherlands, Ahold Delhaize has diversified activities outside of food retail, including online merchandise store bol.com and drugstore Etos.
Among its retail peers in the benchmark, Ahold Delhaize ranks sixth and demonstrates leadership across topics in the governance and strategy measurement area. The company performs strongly in both the nutrition and environment measurement areas, landing in the top 5 and top 15 respectively among its retail peers. While the company performs well in meeting the core social indicators, it has significant opportunity to improve its commitment and reporting across the topics in the social inclusion measurement area that are specific to the food and agriculture system. The company also performs strongly in the wider category of food and beverage manufacturers and processors, demonstrating leadership among all companies with consumer products in their portfolios.
