POLAND, 2015-11-12 — /EPR Retail News/ — At the eighth edition of the Food Market and Retail Forum – Poland’s largest retail event – the Polish food market’s most prestigious prizes were awarded to companies operating in the sector.
Carrefour Poland was recognised for its retail network – the most innovative in Poland in 2015. Among the main reasons were its introduction of new hypermarket and supermarket concepts, together with stores which most effectively meet the ever-changing needs of Polish consumers.
Retail sector experts awarded the “2015 Innowator Rynku Spozywczego” prize (2015 Food Market Innovator) to Carrefour in recognition of the coherent way in which it has introduced new solutions in its stores and broadened its ranges of fresh, organic and “world cuisine” products. Carrefour was also recognised for its new management decentralisation strategy which involves local Carrefour store managers having greater independence. This means that they are able to more effectively meet local customers’ needs.
The Food Market and Retail Forum is Poland’s biggest conference for representatives of the agri-foods industry, retail networks, wholesalers and suppliers of logistics, marketing and technology services. Every year, more than 1000 people attend the Forum, sharing their knowledge and experience and discussing the problems facing the sector and the possibilities it presents with public administration representatives and representatives from government bodies, as well as with scientists and analysts.
