Carrefour opened its first “Carrefour Bio” store in Lyon

Boulogne-Billancourt, FRANCE, 2016-Nov-07 — /EPR Retail News/ — France’s leading organic food supermarket retailer, Carrefour has just opened its first “Carrefour Bio” store in Lyon, shoring up its leadership position on this fast-growing market. This new sales outlet will meet the growing needs of consumers who care about what they eat, providing them with a complete range of organic, healthy products designed to contribute to their well-being – and at affordable prices.

A 100% organic offering
With a sales area of 220 m², this first completely organic food store opened to the public on Wednesday 26 October and is located at 163 bis de l’avenue de Saxe, in Lyon’s town centre. Customers can choose from more than 4500 food items, as well as gluten-free, vegetarian and healthy products – everything they need for a balanced diet at affordable prices. It also has a wide selection of high-quality fresh produce, such as France-grown Carrefour Bio fruit and vegetables, as well as Carrefour Bio fresh meat products – obtained from livestock exclusively reared in France.

A friendly team for organic enthusiasts
Mr Roche – the store’s manager – heads up a team of six recently-hired employees.
Five of them are on permanent contracts, and one has been employed as part of a work/study programme.  Together, their mission is to listen to what the people of Lyon want and to provide them with a friendly, local service so they can buy high-quality products on a day-to-day basis.

Carrefour: forerunner in the world of organic retail and France’s leading vendor of organic products
For more than 20 years, Carrefour has been promoting the production and marketing of organic products across all of its stores, striving whenever possible to use short supply chains and entering into partnerships with French SMEs.

Today, Carrefour is France’s leading retailer of general organic items. Its customers can choose from among more than 6000 products in its hypermarkets, supermarkets and convenience stores, as well as on its e-commerce websites (drive and ooshop).
