Revenue of Schwarz Gruppe in Germany 2009-2019, by sales division

The Schwarz-Gruppe generated over 41 billion euros worth of revenue in 2019, following steadily growing figures in previous years. The group is one of the most successful business enterprises in Europe, owning supermarket chains Kaufland and Lidl, the latter being a discounter. Lidl was also responsible for the higher revenue share of the two.

Lidl and Kaufland

Kaufland and Lidl are both ranked among the most valuable food retail brands in Germany. In fact, Lidl, which was founded by the Schwarz-Gruppe, is in the lead, right behind another discounter chain, Aldi. Kaufland is especially popular among consumers with families for buying groceries and household products in bulk. It’s also one of the most visited large supermarkets, or hypermarkets, in Germany.

Supermarkets leading in food shopping

The majority of German consumers continue to do their regular food and daily product shopping in supermarkets and discount stores. While forecasts show fluctuating revenues in general food and beverage store retail in recent years, figures are predicted to remain stable in 2019 and 2020.
