Leading companies in the food industry in the Netherlands 2018, by revenue

Supermarkets top the 2018 ranking of the largest companies in the food industry in the Netherlands. No less than nine out of ten of the leading food companies were food retailers that year, and only in eighth place we find the highest-ranking food service company, fast food chain McDonald’s. Market leader in the food industry was Albert Heijn, with a revenue of over ten billion euros. This was excluding the revenue from Albert Heijn XL, Albert Heijn’s superstores, which by itself reached a ninth spot in the ranking.

 Albert Heijn also market leader in food retail

   With a market share of 34.7 percent, Albert Heijn was the largest company active in the food retail market in 2018. Its closest competitors were Jumbo and Lidl, with market shares of 19.1 and 10.9 percent respectively. In total, there were nearly 850 Albert Heijn supermarkets in the Netherlands in 2017.

McDonald‘s tops ranking of food service companies

  McDonalds, the leading food service company in the Netherlands, had a revenue of less than one-tenth of Albert Heijn in 2018, at nearly 950 million euros. This was however still significantly higher than other fast food chains as Domino’s Pizza (178.8 million euros) and KFC/YUM! (128.3 million euros) in the same year.
