Auchan and Casino present their new alliance called Horizon

New purchasing centers called « Horizon » should soon be set up between Auchan Retail, the group Casino, Metro and Schiever, both in France and overseas.
“Horizon Achats”, on the purchasing side, will negotiate with around 110 suppliers of consumers good representing around 70% of purchases of well-known brands for the grouping of Auchan, Casino, Metro France and Schiever. The estimated saving on consumers products could represent 0.5 to 1 point.
“Horizon – Appel d’offres” will cover tenders for overheads and non-differentiated private labels, covering 46 types of products and indirect purchasing. “Horizon – Filière” will be in charged to develop a joint value chain with the agricultural sector. The plan is for Horizon to be operational for the 2019 annual negotiations round. Finally, Horizon will also be set up overseas, with the implementation of three entities grouping Auchan Retail, the Group Casino and Métro AG through a joint-venture.
