Cologne, 12.11.09

Cash and carry stores of Cologne-based REWE Group win coveted industry award

The Romanian trading magazine "Piata" awarded FEGRO/SELGROS the "First prize as best company in modern trading". The majority of the 100 jury members comprising experts from the consumer goods industry - the so-called "fast moving consumer goods" (FMCG) - opted in favour of the cash and carry company belonging to transGourmet. A total of 170 candidates from 46 companies took part in the contest. Once a year Piata decides in a total of seven categories about outstanding performances in the trading business. FEGRO/SELGROS entered the Romanian market in 2001 and operates meanwhile 18 outlets. In 2008 the 97 cash and carry locations in Germany, Romania, Poland, Russia and Switzerland (Prodega/Growa) achieved a turnover of 3.8 billion euros.

In 2005 REWE Group and Coop Switzerland founded a 50:50 joint venture under the name transGourmet AG. In 2008 both companies agreed to further deepen the cooperation. The new transGourmet Holding SE, established in 2008, is active throughout Europe and has 24,000 employees. This makes the joint venture the second-largest cash and carry and food service company in Europe with an annual turnover of 6.3 billion euros.
