Carrefour operates over 12,000 retail stores and e-commerce sites in more than 30 countries across three major geographic markets: Europe, Latin America and Asia. The majority of the group's revenue is earned in France, where Carrefour opened its first supermarket in 1960 followed by its first hypermarket in 1963, and its growth since has been helped by acquisitions such as Atacadao, a Brazilian wholesale hypermarket, in 2007. Overall, Carrefour serves an estimated 13 million customers worldwide daily, and targets short supply chains within each country, with 73% of all food products purchased from local suppliers.
Carrefour ranks fifth among its peers in the food retail value chain segment, demonstrating consistent performance across all measurement areas, with particular strengths in governance and strategy and the environment. Furthermore, the company has its own brand of consumer products, which also puts it in the food and beverage processing segment, where it ranks among the top 20.
