Leading supermarket chains in Belgium in 2019, by number of stores

Leading supermarket chains in Belgium 2019, by number of stores In 2019, German discounter ALDI and French retailer Carrefour each had 437 stores in Belgium, making these two supermarkets the largest food retailers in the country in terms of the number of stores. When looking at the total shop floor area though, Carrefour outperformed ALDI considerably, with a shop floor area of nearly 543,000 square meters vs. ALDI’s roughly 385,000 square meters.
 Colruyt has the highest retail sales value… 

  Despite having more stores, neither ALDI nor Carrefour had the largest retail sales value of the food retailers active in Belgium. Colruyt, the family-owned discounter headquartered in Halle, was the supermarket chain with the highest sales value in 2018, at nearly nine billion euros. By comparison, that was almost twice as much as Carrefour and over three times as much as ALDI.

…as well as the largest market share

  Colruyt was also the leading food purchasing group in Belgium in 2017 based on market share. Colruyt, which next to the supermarkets of the same name also operates the Okay, BioPlanet and Spar supermarkets, had market share of nearly 27 percent in Belgium. Carrefour had a market share of nearly 19 percent this year, whereas ALDI’s market share was 11 percent.
