UAB Palink is a Lithuanian retail company and operates 240 stores with 7,400 employees under the iki brand. It was established in 1991 by the three brothers George, Oliver and Nicolas Ortiz from Belgium.

With a turnover totalling 695 million euros in 2013, UAB Palink is number 2 in the supermarket business of Lithuania. The company is headed by Gerard Rog.

Since 2008, REWE Group has held a share in UAB Palink together with other strategic partners. In addition to the broad range of fresh food, iki stores comprise a bakery as well as service counters for fish and gourmet products. Furthermore, the stores provide a demand-based non-food range.

The checkout area is a real innovation as iki was the first retailer to introduce a self-service checkout in Lithuania. These additional self-service checkouts allow quick payment even if there is heavy customer traffic.
