Auchan is a retail group operating over 4,000 convenience stores, supermarkets, superstores and hypermarkets across 17 different countries. Founded in 1961 by Gerard Mulliez in Roubaix, northern France, Auchan remains family-owned to this day, albeit operating under several different identities, including Alcampo (Spain) and RT-Mart as a joint venture with Sun Art Retail Group (China). With over 350,000 employees, Auchan is one of the world's largest retail employers.
Ranking 35th among its retail segment peers, Auchan has an opportunity to improve its commitments and reporting across all four measurement areas. Given its consumer-facing role, the company has an opportunity to step up its reporting across the nutrition measurement area for topics such as accessibility and affordability of healthy foods and responsible marketing. Similarly, the company is yet to meet the basic requirements on issues such as child and forced labour and paying a living wage. The company also shows below average performance when ranked against its peers in the food and beverage processors and manufacturers segment.
