Albert Heijn is a supermarket company from the Netherlands, and is part of the global Ahold Delhaize group. This chain has its origins in 1887, when Albert Heijn bought a grocery store in Oostzaan. Today, Albert Heijn boasts a total of about 1,154 Dutch supermarkets, the highest number of outlets out of all food chains in the Netherlands.
Accounting for more than a third of the national market, Albert Heijn was unequivocally the leading company within the country’s food retail industry in 2022. Jumbo, which accounted for just over 21 percent and is Albert Heijn’s top competitor, has grown considerably over the past decade and is likely to keep up the pace for years to come.
Ahold Delhaize is a multinational corporation and is the parent company to several brands, including Albert Heijn, Food Lion, Delhaize, Pingo Doce, etc. Despite starting off and having its headquarters in Europe (Zaandam, Netherlands), the company made just over 60 percent of its global net sales in the United States in 2021. Overall, the company generated a total of almost 76 billion euros' worth of net sales that year, making it one of the largest supermarket chains across the globe.
